  Physica pro medicis - Interactive Course On The Physics Of The Human Body

Basel University (Project Leader)
Lausanne and Bern Universities
Zurich, Neuchâtel, Fribourg and Geneva Universities

A thorough understanding of the physics of the human body is an essential prerequisite for practising medicine. Due to pressure of time, however, it is hardly possible for medical students to carry out experiments in this area during their studies. This is where the Physica pro medicis project comes in: e-learning modules simulate physical phenomena and trials that cannot be presented so clearly by means of traditional methods, using medical examples to illustrate and explain the physical fundamentals.

Physica pro medicis plans a combination of face-to-face teaching and self-study on the Internet. The modules will mainly be used in the first year course, and be employed again in later years for the detailed discussion of individual medico-physical concepts such as X-rays and MRI.

Basel and Bern Universities have already worked together to design the content of the new "Physics for Doctors" lectures. This means that there is a considerable supply of copyright-free modules available for further use.
