Medical Physiology is a class for students who want to continue learning about how the body works. Most of the students that take this class are interested in medicine, veterinary medicine, nursing, and other life science subjects.
Anatomy & Physiology is a co-requisite for Medical Physiology. Students in their second semester of A&P and students who have completed A&P can take the class.
The class is taught almost solely using case studies from the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science’s database. It’s a great resource.
See the Medical Physiology page for the list of case studies that I use in the class. I will eventually have descriptions of the cases and how I use them in the class.
