Highlights: Fluid Mechanics of the Lung: A student-centered module on the Physics of the Respiratory System
Abstract: A hands-on, active learning 6-section module covering the mechanics of breathing and the pressure differences guiding air flow in the respiratory system in health and disease. Curriculum reviews and expands on introductory physics content. Module activities are directed toward an application of physics to medicine and address MCAT Pre-Health Competencies of knowledge of basic physical principles and their applications to the understanding of living systems and importance of fluids for the circulation of blood, gas movement, and gas exchange. Target audience is students pursuing graduate school/careers in medicine or health care.
