Teaching of Clinical Physiology in the Medical Curriculum. The Omani Model

M. O. Hassan, S.E. Lindell

Abstract


In recent years, Physiology, as a medical discipline is continuously drifting away from the study of the complex, integrated whole body functions towards cellular and molecular levels. This has resulted in a steady increase in molecular  biologists and a steady decline in medical physiologists in departments at Physiology in medical schools, Such change is already  having its impact on the teaching at body systems and integrative Physiology to medical students, as evident the shifting of such teaching frcm Physiology departments to the respective clinical departments where Physiology is being taught by physicians of the respective clinical departments where Physiology is being taught by physicians of the reapective clinical disciplines. The aim of this presentaticn is to show that the introduction of the teaching of Physiology in medical schools and teaching hospitals can help to restore the intergrity of medical Physiology as an entity in medicine.
