PHGY 215 - Principles of Mammalian Physiology I

Physiology 215 (Principles of Mammalian Physiology I) is a comprehensive systems physiology course with a focus on normal human physiology. The mechanical, physical, bioelectrical, and biochemical function of the Neural, Musculoskeletal, and Cardiovascular systems will be described. Normal physiological processes necessary for maintaining homeostasis and health will be emphasized. Examples of Pathophysiology will be used to demonstrate the importance of normal physiological processes.

Note: The Blended offering of this course is only available to students registered in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program.

  • understand the functional interactions amongst organ systems, from attending lectures, reviewing the text, viewing materials on the Web, and discussions with classmates and professors.
  • develop an ability to solve problems of an integrative physiological nature in a limited time on the basis of retained information and without recourse to reference material.
  • appreciate the limitations of our knowledge and the contributions of research to the expansion of our knowledge about physiology and related disciplines.

Textbooks and Materials

The recommended textbook for PHGY 215, available at Campus Bookstore, is Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems, 4 th  edition by Sherwood and Ward (2 nd  or 3 rd  could also be used). This text, when purchased new (4 th  edition), comes with access to the company’s website which includes an e-text, interactive tutorials, videos, animations, and other multimedia tools. Access to this online information, while helpful, is not necessary and should not dissuade one from purchasing a used textbook. If you do purchase the 4 th  edition textbook, you will need to enter the access key (provided with purchase) and the course code (MTPP-LW8P-KD9M) in order to access online features. If you have any difficulties, consult the PowerPoint file associated with the first learning event.

Grading Method

All components of this course will receive numerical percentage marks. The final grade you receive for the course will be derived by converting your numerical course average to a letter grade according to Queen’s Official Grade Conversion Scale:

Queen’s Official Grade Conversion Scale

Academic integrity  is constituted by the five core fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility (see www.academicintegrity.org ). These values are central to the building, nurturing and sustaining of an academic community in which all members of thecommunity will thrive. Adherence to the values expressed through academic integrity forms a foundation for the "freedom of inquiry and exchange of ideas" essential to the intellectual life of the University (see the Senate Report on Principles and Priorities: http://www.queensu.ca/secretariat/policies/senateandtrustees/principles… ). Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the regulations concerning academic integrity and for ensuring that their assignments conform to the principles of academic integrity. Information on academic integrity is available in the Arts and Science Calendar (see Academic Regulation 1 http://www.queensu.ca/artsci/academic-calendars/2011-2012-calendar/acad… - 1), on the Arts and Science website (see http://www.queensu.ca/artsci/academics/undergraduate/academic-integrity ), and from the instructor of this course. Departures from academic integrity include plagiarism, use of unauthorized materials, facilitation, forgery and falsification, and are antithetical to the development of an academic community at Queen's. Given the seriousness of these matters, actions which contravene the regulation on academic integrity carry sanctions that can range from a warning or the loss of grades on an assignment to the failure of a course to a requirement to withdraw from the university.

Undergraduate Courses

PHGY 216 Principles of Mammalian Physiology II

PHGY 216 Principles of Mammalian Physiology II

The focus of this course is the physiology of the respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive systems.

This course is intended to be paired with PHGY 215/3.0 to achieve an introductory physiology full course (6.0 unit) equivalent and designed to meet the needs of those wishing to pursue professional programs. This is an online course that makes use of six online learning modules, supplemented with discussion forums.

Note: Although it is recommended to take PHGY215/3.0 first, PHGY 216/3.0 can also be taken before or concurrently with PHGY 215/3.0.

Prerequisites

Minimum 2nd year (Level 2) standing. PHGY 215/3.0 is recommended.

IDIS 150/6.0, PHGY 210/6.0, PHGY 214/6.0, KNPE 125(3.0)/225(3.0)

Method of Delivery

Online format with materials, communication, and assignment submission all via Daylight (onQ).

Physiological Basis of Health and Disease

Learning Outcomes

After completing PHGY 216, students will be able to:

  • Understand physiology at the molecular, cellular, and system levels in order to explain how their roles and functions are combined in integrative physiology. (PLO1,2; Assessments 1-4)
  • Describe the physiology of the respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and reproductive systems to define normal and abnormal function. (PLO2; Assessments 1-4)
  • Apply research skills to further your knowledge of physiological systems. (PLO8; Assessment 2)

Note: PLO refers to the program learning outcomes to which each course learning outcome matches to.

Competencies

The assessments that correspond with the program competencies are indicated below:

  • Communicator (Assessments 1-4)
  • Advocate (Assessment 1)
  • Leader (Assessment 1)
  • Scholar (Assessment 2)
  • Professional (Assessment 1)
  • Collaborator (Assessment 1)

Assessments

Assessment 1: case study discussion boards (10%; lo 1,2).

Students will be placed in small groups and assigned biweekly case studies and a corresponding set of questions. Each time a case study is assigned, one member of the group will be the Discussion Group Leader with the other members being the Discussion Group Participants (each student will only be the Leader once). The Discussion Board Leader is responsible for answering the proposed questions and facilitating discussion through posting his/her own thought-provoking question. The Discussion Board Participants are then required to respond, providing their feedback to one of the Leader’s answers or by answering the Leader’s question.

Assessment 1 will be graded using marking rubrics.

Assessment 2: Term Report (25%; LO 1-3)

Working individually, students will be required to conduct independent research on a disease of their choice from a provided list. They will submit a report summarizing the disease, physiology of the systems it affects, the pathophysiology of the disease, and impact of treatment on the physiology/pathophysiology.

Assessment 2 will be graded using marking rubrics.

Assessment 3: Midterm Exam (25%; LO 1,2)

The exam will be conducted online and will consist of multiple choice and short answer questions.

Assessment 4: Final Proctored Exam (40%; LO 1,2)

The final exam will include well-designed, case-based multiple choice and short answer questions that will test the students’ overall understanding and application of the course material, rather than rote memorization.

Two tutorials will be run by the instructor during the course, one before the midterm and one before the final exam, providing students with an opportunity to clarify any concepts or questions.

Time Commitment

Students can expect to spend approximately 10-11 hours a week in study/practice and online activities for PHGY 216.
