Community Forums - Physiology Educator Community of Practice (PECOP) - good resources for cases to help teach physiology

A discussion forum for physiology educators at all levels. If you would like to contribute to the forums or to change your subscription, please log in to the left.

Hello. I am new to this board. I am a physician who has recently started teaching physiology at a PA program. The program uses team based learning and flipped classroom techniques exclusively so good cases are essential.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Re: good resources for cases to help teach physiology

Hi Bruce, some resources I've used:

Case files: Physiology (Lange)

BRS Cases & problems (Costanzo)

Problem-based physiology (Carroll)

Underground Clinical Vignettes: Pathophysiology I, II, III

You may find some cases in general physiology texts have clinical cases.


Hope that helps some.

Re: good resources for cases to help teach physiology

Hi Bruce,

I've found some great case studies through the Buffalo case studies website. I usually modify them a little for specific things I lecture on, but they are a great resource.  You can also search for a specific topic through the LifeSciTRC site, and sometimes the links take you to Buffalo case studies.  You do have to pay a small fee for the answer keys, but it is well worth it!  Hope this helps!

Re: good resources for cases to help teach physiology

Hi Bruce,

This response might be so late to your inquiry. I just recently joined LifeSci. I use Case Files in Physiology McGraw Hill. I tweak the case according to the needs of the lecture.

Life and light are enumerated for the better for the realm of all issues. The turns of the joy and assignment help are passed out for the true means for all humans. The light is fixed for the lively engrossing of the moves for people.
