Physiology Cases and Problems includes a collection of carefully selected patient case studies covering the clinically relevant physiology topics that first and second year medical students need to know for physiology coursework and for USMLE Step 1. Both courses and board exams focus on clinical topics and their relationship to the underlying science. The cases cover clinically relevant topics in physiology by asking students to answer open-ended questions and solve questions. A companion to Dr. Costanzo's BRS Physiology book, this book is also intended as a complement to lectures, course syllabi, and comprehensive textbooks in physiology.
