NEXUS/Physics: What can physics do for biology and pre-medical students? By Edward F. Redish, University of Maryland

Description:
Research biologists and medical schools are calling for universities to revise and upgrade the undergraduate curriculum for biology and pre-medical students. The critical issues they have identified include modernizing the curriculum, coordinating with other disciplines, and focusing on helping students to develop scientific competencies. As part of the National Experiment on Undergraduate Science (NEXUS), a four-university collaboration supported by HHMI, physicists, biologists, and science education specialists at the University of Maryland are designing NEXUS/Physics curriculum. A strong effort is made to develop examples that are authentic to biology and chemistry  where learning the physics helps students develop of stronger understanding of important topics introduced in other science classes. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 19, 2013
