PHYSL 410 - Clinical & Translational Physiology

Innovative online course featuring unique systems approach to learning fundamental concepts in physiology and biomedical research. Real-world cases in clinical medicine highlighting each major organ system are presented in a problem-based learning format. Essential themes in physiology and pathophysiology including complex inter-relationships between organ and control systems are used to unravel each clinical case. Gaps in clinical knowledge and practice are linked to current scientific and translational research strategies. Enriches preparation for careers in medicine, biomedical research and health- related fields. Prerequisites: PHYSL 212 and 214 (or 210) or equivalent and consent of Department. Note: this course is not open to students with credit in the corresponding PHYSL 510.


PHYSL 412 - Physiology in History and Popular Culture

Key historical scientific/medical discoveries as well as modern socio-cultural phenomena serve as a catalyst for discussion of fundamental concepts in Physiology spanning all body systems. Historical case presentation contrasts ideological, technological and scientific approaches with modern views and advances. Popular culture references initiate in-depth investigation of the physiological basis of modern social phenomena. Highlighted case presentations facilitate application of physiology knowledge through discovery learning approaches to study historical foundations and modern marvels by evoking vivid imagery, curiosity and relatability. Suitable for preparation for careers in medicine, biomedical research and health-related fields; relevant for fields involving knowledge dissemination such as public health promotion and education. Prerequisites: PHYSL 212 and 214 (or 210) or equivalent and consent of Department. Note: this course is not open to students with credit PHYSL 512.
