Abstract: This TBL module was developed for second-year medical students enrolled in a required Gastroenterology and Hepatobiliary Organ System Course. It was designed to cover foundational concepts for the physiology of gastrointestinal (GI) secretion and its regulation, as well as the pathophysiology, causes, and diagnoses of two important GI diseases (cystic fibrosis and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome). This TBL module was offered during the 4th week of a five-week course.
Target audience: Second Year Medical Students
