Bintley, Helen L.; Bell, Alexander; Ashworth, Rachel – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Evidence shows that biomedical knowledge is more effectively taught within the medical curriculum by teaching in context, to facilitate learning transfer. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effect of combining high-technology simulation and physiology teaching on medical student learning and experience. First-year medical…

Johnson, Shereé M.; Owens, Tamara L.; O'Neil, Jahn N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Although human patient simulation (HPS) began more than a decade ago, substantial evidence argues for increased use of simulation in teaching basic science courses, such as physiology and the full integration of simulation into medical school curricula so as to benefit both educators and learners. The introduction and application of simulation in…

Muthukrishnan, Suriya Prakash; Chandran, Dinu S.; Afreen, Naaz; Bir, Megha; Dastidar, Shaon Ghosh; Jayappa, Harsith; Mattoo, Bhawna; Navneet, Arvind; Poorasamy, Jeevitha; Roy, Atanu; Sharma, Anju; Ghosh, Debabrata; Deepak, Kishore K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Didactic lecture is an effective method to quickly pass on a high volume of information to a large number of students. However, if not well designed, lectures can be monotonous and provide only passive learning, with little scope for higher order learning skills. To address this drawback of lectures, we supplemented it with case-based learning…

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…

Hopper, Mari K.; Kaiser, Alexis N. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
The primary aim of this study was to determine whether levels of student engagement, higher order skill proficiency, and knowledge acquisition demonstrated by medical students would differ when completing the same course in three diverse learning environments. Following Institutional Review Board approval, 56 first-year medical students,…

Bell, Floyd E., III; Wilson, L. Britt; Hoppmann, Richard A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Ultrasound is being incorporated more into undergraduate medical education. Studies have shown that medical students have positive perceptions about the value of ultrasound in teaching courses like anatomy and physiology. The purpose of the present study was to provide objective evidence of whether ultrasound helps students learn cardiac…

Roberts, John K.; Hargett, Charles W.; Nagler, Alisa; Jakoi, Emma; Lehrich, Ruediger W. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2015
Medical education reform is underway, but the optimal course for change has yet to be seen. While planning for the redesign of a renal physiology course at the Duke School of Medicine, the authors used a Q-sort survey to assess students' attitudes and learning preferences to inform curricular change. The authors invited first-year medical students…

Bhaskar, Anand – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
Theory lectures are boring and sleep inducing for students, and it is difficult to get their full attention during 1 h of lecture. The ability of students to concentrate diminishes 20-25 min after the start of the lecture. There is also a lack of active participation of students during theory lectures. In an effort to break the monotony of the…

Pande, Sushma; Pande, Santosh; Parate, Vrushali; Pande, Sanket; Sukhsohale, Neelam – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
Poor awareness among medical graduates about basic life support (BLS) is a matter of great concern. The presence of a trained rescuer is the key determinant of ultimate survival from life-threatening emergencies. To achieve this goal, early exposure to such life-saving skills is the right decision to foster these skills for medical students, which…

Rangachari, P. K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 1991
An undergraduate course in pharmacology in which problem-based self-directed learning in the context of small groups provides students with an opportunity to take greater responsibility for their own learning is described. The objectives, examples of problems used in the course, and student evaluations of the course and tutors are included. (KR)
