Temple University School of Medicine

Description

This workshop uses aspects of team-based learning strategies to reinforce the basic science knowledge acquired in lectures and laboratory sessions related to the endocrine system and provides an opportunity for students to apply this knowledge to clinical patient care. Upon completion of this exercise, the student will have reviewed the following: (1) the basic structure and function of the adrenal gland, (2) the specific cell types in the adrenal gland and their function(s), (3) the regulation of synthesis and secretion of the hormones produced by the adrenal gland and (4) the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of adrenal insufficiency.
