Project description

Physiology is the basis of medical knowledge. We are looking to generate a website and an array of learning tools for medical students based on our medical curriculum. We aim to convert images from lecture slides into clickable/interactive form to provide a new way for students to explore important medical concepts. 

Project outcome

The outcome will be a website, or even an app, that will be assessed by medical school faculty and students in the coming academic year for its effectiveness as a learning tool and its suitability for inclusion in the medical school curriculum.
