I teach physiology to around 800 second and third-year Medical and Bachelor of Science students in large lecture, small group and laboratory settings. Whatever the setting, I have a holistic teaching philosophy which develops students, initially focused on memorisation and comprehension, into independent learners who can synthesise, communicate and effectively apply their disciplinary knowledge. I see physiology as a cornerstone subject for understanding medicine. As it relies on abstract concepts, which can be difficult for students to grasp, I use real-life examples to demonstrate physiological principals at work, enabling students to contextualise and substantiate ideas.
