On the basis of this background, the syllabus of physiology has been widened to include the basic concepts of clinical and experimental physiology. On one hand, almost all the currently available books contain text-books about clinical physiology but on the other hand, basic concepts of fundamental physiologic principles are not routinely taught. In addition, students of physiology are expected to be familiar with the basic concepts of experimental methods, schemes and equipments to identify the scientific alternatives to clinical reasoning. Accordingly, the current manual of physiology has been written in such a way that undergraduate medical student would have the combined knowledge of both fundamental and clinical physiology. The most important aspect was the curriculum also includes special topics of cardiology, endocrinology, respiratory/thoracic, and digestive tracts.
This book is intended for the medical student of B.Sc. As well as, physicians. In preparation and further development of these provisional lectures, the author plans to provide more detail on how to get started with the endeavor.
There are numerous methods to learn the physiology of any organ. One of the earliest forms of learning was the memorization of their names and functions. As the subject developed, each student took a more in-depth approach to memorize the knowledge. In the 20th century, the curriculum by many Universities began to include a block of course-work. The course was basically a collection of readings and assigned sessions in a lecture room. In this way, the student “learns” about the subject and absorbed the important facts that was to be learned. The most convenient and time-efficient modus-operandi was the use of a teacher for an entire semester. In this, the student would sit in a circle of students, each of whom had the same teacher as the student. In the process of discussion, the instructor would marshal the knowledge among the group participants, concurrent to the knowledge gained in the discipline. With the 90s, the enrolment of medical students increased tremendously and the concept of block with a single teacher was phased out. Since then, the block-system has been replaced by faculty-in-residence and required course for undergraduate student. d2c66b5586
