Physiology is a really interesting class (and a challenging one). While anatomy teaches where everything is in the body, physiology teaches how everything works in the body. For this new block, we have a new visiting professor from Temple University School of Medicine and a new unit: Gastrointestinal Tract. We’ll learn about the whole process from the time we put food in our mouth until the time it comes out the other end. We’ve already covered endocrine, neural, and myogenic control as well as covered the complex physiology of swallowing and peristalsis this past week. Check out the quiz I made about GI hormones and see how much you can get!
My name is Benji Ho and I am a family physician and 2013 graduate of the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), located on the Dutch side of the beautiful island of St. Maarten. My time at AUC has been quite a worldwide adventure, studying two years of Basic Sciences on the island, then completing my clinical rotations in the US as well as the UK. I completed my family medicine residency at Mercer University School of Medicine / Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia. Today, I am a board-certified family physician practicing outpatient family medicine in Macon, Georgia. I hope you enjoy my site as I share with you my journey. Thanks for visiting Diary of a Caribbean Med Student! more about me...
