A hands-on comparative physiology-based faculty development program aimed to equip clinician educators with the confidence and ability to integrate physiology and mechanistic thinking into their daily clinical teaching and medical decision making. Participants will conduct actual comparative physiology experiments using aquatic species, designed to enhance understanding of basic physiologic principles in humans. These experiences will be used as a springboard to create teaching scripts that participants can employ in clinical practice. The goal is for participants to develop a renewed confidence in, and take home tangible products for incorporating physiology into clinical teaching.
