…and so the adventure begins – the exploration of asynchronous contextual learning brings you basic science in clinical context
The Physiology Philes Vodcasts have sprung from the concept that physiology is
- not well remembered by most doctors who were forced to rote learn diagrams and charts in order to pass an exam
- the fundamental building block for all interventions that we do in medicine.
To this end, the Physiology Philes seeks to reimagine the way we look at physiology, to refresh those who’ve forgotten, and teach those who never knew it, in order for anybody in any streams of medical, nursing, and allied health fields to understand the magnificent workings of the human body, and extrapolate this to understanding why we do what we do.
The vodcasts are part of a broader plan to integrate physiology information sharing, and are mostly short, video based, which stem from a single clinical scenario or question, and are then deconstructed to look at the physiology behind these.
