Abstract

This paper is a summary of the special collection of papers in Advances in Physiology Education dedicated to the Physiology Majors Interest Group (P-MIG). P-MIG is a new and vibrant community (1, 2) of educators and administrators who are united by the common goal of creating physiology courses, curricula and programs that will prepare our students for the future. It is an independent consortium that welcomes anyone interested in physiology education at the level of the undergraduate degree in physiology and physiology-related fields. As demonstrated by this special collection of papers of Advances in Physiology Education, P-MIG has already made substantial progress in three areas: 1) developing curricular guidelines based on core concepts in physiology (8, 10, 13, 17, 18, 22), 2) developing guidelines for professional skills for our students and surveying advising practices (7, 9, 19), and 3) using survey data to learn about physiology educators and physiology (3, 16, 21).
