De Paleville, Daniela Terson – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
The purpose of this outreach program was to promote elementary school students' understanding of human physiology and exercise science. I conducted this outreach event for 421 pre-kindergarten through grade 5 students attending a Spanish-immersion elementary school within a large, urban public school district in Kentucky. To meet the needs of the…

Zhang, Xiao-Min; Yu, Jian-Yun; Yang, Yuan; Feng, Cui-Peng; Lyu, Jing; Xu, Shi-Lian – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A small private online course (SPOC) supports blended learning on a small scale, enabling students to have a more comprehensive and deeper learning experience. It also provides instructors with a flexible and feasible model to better understand the students' learning needs and to supervise students' learning behaviors. In this study, we adopted…

Eckel, Julia; Zavaritskaya, Olga; Schüttpelz-Brauns, Katrin; Schubert, Rudolf – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Recently, medical students' scientific thinking skills have been identified as an important issue in medical education. Scientific thinking cannot be imparted in conventional lectures, but rather requires actively involving students. We modified a practical course in physiology. A study was designed to test whether the new course fosters…

Olson, Jay; Rinehart, Jim; Spiegel, Jacqueline Jordan; Al-Nakkash, Layla – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
A variety of medical simulators have been developed over recent years for students of all medical professions. These simulators serve to teach basic science concepts, advanced clinical skills, as well as empathy and student confidence. This study aimed to understand the students' perception of the integration of high-fidelity simulation exercises…

Kwankajonwong, Nachchakorn; Ongprakobkul, Chuthamas; Qureshi, Shaun Peter; Watanatada, Pasakorn; Thanprasertsuk, Sekh; Bongsebandhu-phubhakdi, Saknan – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Positive attitude and self-evaluation are necessary for medical students and doctors. To explore how best to integrate physiology teaching in our Thai medical curriculum, we investigated relationships between student's academic performance, their attitude, self-evaluated knowledge, and proportion of physiology taught in an organ-system integrated…

Powell, Jacqueline M.; Murray, Ian V. J.; Johal, Jaspreet; Elks, Martha L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Physiology is one of the major foundational sciences for the medical curriculum. This discipline has proven challenging for students to master due to ineffective content acquisition and retention. Preliminary data obtained from a survey completed by "low-performance" students (those maintaining a grade average below the passing mark of…

O'Malley, Dervla; Barry, Denis S.; Rae, Mark G. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Medical students increasingly utilize social media platforms to supplement their preclinical learning; however, the prevalence of social media use for physiology learning in medical education remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to determine how first-year medical students from both direct entry medicine and graduate entry medicine…

Michael, Joel; Modell, Harold – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
We have created and validated a conceptual framework for the core physiology concept of "cell membrane." The conceptual framework is composed of 27 items arranged in a hierarchy that is, in some instances, four levels deep. We have validated it with input from faculty who teach at a wide variety of institutional types. All items making…

Arain, Shoukat Ali; Afsar, Nasir Ali; Rohra, Dileep Kumar; Zafar, Muhammad – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Learning clinical skills in a large group of undergraduate medical students is challenging. Innovative technology-based modalities are being evaluated to complement limited hospital rotations. We determined the effectiveness of clinical skills-related audiovisual (AV) aids embedded in electronic-problem-based learning (PBL) sessions, in terms of…

Williams, Mark T.; Lluka, Lesley J.; Meyer, Jan H. F.; Chunduri, Prasad – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
An accurate self-assessment of student work can enhance student learning and subsequently improve academic performance. Instructors can facilitate this process by providing "standards" that students can utilize as feedback when self-evaluating their understanding. Traditional forms of feedback, such as marked assessment tasks, are…

Kauffman, Christine A.; Derazin, Megan; Asmar, Abdo; Kibble, Jonathan D. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Historically, attendance has been a marker of academic performance, but the current medical education literature has had mixed results. In addition, attendance is dropping in the preclinical curricula, whereas, at the same time, the focus on United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1 performance is increasing. This present study is a…

del Mar Quiroga, Maria; Choate, Julia K. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Physiology is commonly taught through direct experience and observation of scientific phenomena in "hands-on" practical laboratory classes. The value of such classes is limited by students' lack of understanding of the underlying theoretical concepts and their lack of confidence with the experimental techniques. In our experience,…

Durand, Marina de Toledo; Restini, Carolina Baraldi Araujo; Wolff, Amora C. D.; Faria, Milton, Jr.; Couto, Lucélio Bernardes; Bestetti, Reinaldo Bulgarelli – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Over the years, much criticism against animal use for physiology teaching has been made. Hence, replacement by suitable alternatives has increased in several pedagogical approaches. This study examined students' perceptions of animal versus virtual (video/computer) laboratory classes in physiological sciences associated with the effectiveness of…
