Abstract

Anderson LC, Rogers J, Stanescu CI, French MB, VanRyn VS, Wehrwein EA. Physiology educators find community in the Physiology Majors Interest Group. Adv Physiol Educ 44: 620–625, 2020; doi:10.1152/advan.00182.2019.—The Physiology Majors Interest Group (P-MIG) is a grass-roots consortium of physiology educators with the common interest of creating program-level guidelines for undergraduate physiology and related programs. A key component of the consortium’s activities are the annual P-MIG conferences that have been held at different universities over the past 3 yr (Michigan State University, 2017; University of Arizona, 2018; and University of Minnesota, 2019). Postconference surveys indicate that the conferences are highly valued by the participants, as they have provided an opportunity to get to know others who are passionate about undergraduate education, to discuss best practices in program and course delivery, and to form working groups with the goal to develop national and international guidelines for physiology program delivery and assessment.
