Guy, Richard,; Byrne, Bruce; Dobos, Marian – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Anatomy and physiology interactive video clips were introduced into a blended learning environment, as an optional resource, and were accessed by ~50% of the cohort. Student feedback indicated that clips were engaging, assisted understanding of course content, and provided lecture support. Students could also access two other optional online…

Gupta, Akriti; Singh, Satendra; Khaliq, Farah; Dhaliwal, Upreet; Madhu, S. V. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
In the country presently, preclinical medical students are not routinely exposed to real patients. Thus, when they start clinical postings, they are found to have poor clinical reasoning skills. Simulated virtual patients (SVPs) can improve clinical skills without endangering real patients. This pilot study describes the development of two SVPs in…

Kachroo, Upasana; Vinod, Elizabeth; Balasubramanian, Sivakumar; W., Jesi; Prince, Neetu – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
A good understanding of red cell indexes can aid medical students in a considerable manner, serving as a basis to unravel both concepts in red cell physiology and abnormalities associated with the same. In this study, we tried to assess whether an interactive animation was helpful in improving student comprehension and understanding of red cell…

Klibanov, Olga M.; Dolder, Christian; Anderson, Kevin; Kehr, Heather A.; Woods, J. Andrew – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The impact of distance education via interactive videoconferencing on pharmacy students' performance in a course was assessed after implementation of a distance campus. Students filled out a "Student Demographic Survey" and a "Precourse Knowledge Assessment" at the start of the course and a "Postcourse Knowledge…

Abraham, Reem Rachel; Torke, Sharmila; Gonsalves, James; Narayanan, Sareesh Naduvil; Kamath, M. Ganesh; Prakash, Jay; Rai, Kiranmai S. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The present study reports perceptions of first-year undergraduate medical students (n= 120), regarding modified directed self-learning (DSL) sessions in physiology. Students were provided with prereading assignments (faculty developed PowerPoint slides containing diagrams with incomplete labeling/ flowcharts with missing steps) pertaining to the…

AlMohanna, Asmaa M.; Suliman, Mohammed E.; AlEssa, Noran A.; Khatib, Said Y.; Saeed, Abdallah A.; Hamza, Muaawia A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The aim of the study was to explore the factors associated with the recall of basic medical physiology knowledge among medical interns and to determine the level of retained basic science knowledge. Two hundred and four interns, 114 women and 90 men, working in two major tertiary medical care centers, King Fahad Medical City (KFMC; 29 students)…

Colthorpe, Kay Louise – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Physiology courses are considered to be challenging for students to master due to the highly conceptual nature of the discipline and the substantial cognitive effort required to understand disciplinary knowledge. Students must choose appropriate learning strategies to develop their understanding, as their choices may influence both their…

Loudon, Catherine; Macias-Muñoz, Aide – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Different versions of multiple-choice exams were administered to an undergraduate class in human physiology as part of normal testing in the classroom. The goal was to evaluate whether the number of options (possible answers) per question influenced the effectiveness of this assessment. Three exams (each with three versions) were given to each of…

Fitzgerald, Barry W. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The X-Men are an ensemble of superheroes whose powers are associated with the X-Gene, a mutant genetic factor. The powers exhibited by each character differ and are dependent on how the X-Gene has modified their individual genomes. For instance, Wolverine possesses regenerative healing, Storm can control local weather systems, and Colossus can…

Hauton, David; Ray, Clare J. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
We describe a simple, cost-effective experiment to demonstrate cardiovascular integration of heart rate and blood pressure to accommodate the environmental and dietary factors of gravity and caffeine. Specific learning objectives associated with this include understanding the effects of posture on blood pressure and heart rate, coupled with the…

Singh, Nikhilesh; Gupta, Richa; Mahalakshmi, V. N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
To introduce active learning session for a large group of 250 students, we combined the strengths of problem-based learning and team-based learning to promote a structured active learning strategy with less faculty involvement. For the implementation of this strategy, a case on anemia was selected based on the module already covered in classes.…
