hysiology is another tough course. These days, most schools offer anatomy and physiology together as one course, spread out over two semesters. However, whether you take the combo course or physiology alone, you will still need to learn the same material. Where anatomy is pure memorization, physiology involves applying concepts from biology and chemistry to gain an understanding of how the body works.
To help you out, we've scouted some great internet resources you can use to supplement your studies:
From the University of Arizona, this webpage has 11 cardiovascular, 5 respiratory, 5 renal, 5 endocrine and 5 gastrointestinal physiology practice tests. The quizzes were developed by 6 different professors and feature automatic online grading - an extremely useful study aid!
This is a McGraw-Hill website designed to supplement their text books. It features chapter summaries and outlines, critical thinking and internet activities, web links and automatically graded online chapter tests. Very comprehensive resource site!
This site is maintained by Dr. Gary Ritchison of Eastern Kentucky University. It features comprehensive lecture notes and illustrations that correspond to the human physiology course he teaches - great!
More resources will be added as we find them. If you know of a great online resource for physiology, let us know! E-mail your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org
