Problem-Based Physiology


  • Robert Carroll, PhD, East Carolina University, Brody School of Medicine, Physiology Department, Greenville, NC

A fully problem-based, integrated physiology text, this new resource uses clinical case studies to promote interactive learning and to build a foundation of knowledge for clinical practice. Each case presents an unknown clinical disorder and examines differential diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes as well as relevant physiologic principles for a well-rounded review. Approximately 150 illustrations (most in full color) reinforce learning of the written material, while a practice test of USMLE-style questions—with explanations—aids in USMLE Steps 1 and 2 preparation.
