HumPhysPrep Version 1.0 is an interactive software program consisting of a multiple-choice question database, with answers and explanations that together comprise a system for exam preparation in organ systems physiology.  The database has over 1000 questions in 7 main topic areas, containing a total of 144 separate subtopics.  The 7 main topics are as follows:

  • Body Fluids
  • Neuromuscular Physiology and the Special Senses
  • Respiratory Physiology
  • Cardiovascular Physiology
  • Renal Physiology
  • Gastrointestinal Physiology
  • Endocrine and Reproductive Physiology

This comprehensive Human Physiology question bank was created by Dr. Larry R. Engelking, Professor of Biomedical Sciences, Emeritus, from Tufts University, with the assistance of Dr. Irwin M. Arias, Dr. James F. Dice, and Dr. Kathleen Dunlap from the Department of Physiology.

Dr. Engelking has been teaching physiology to medical and veterinary students for over 20 years, and has authored four textbooks and many research articles. He designed this question bank for medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing, and allied health students who wish to organize and test their thinking in physiology while preparing for their national board exams, for interns and residents preparing for their specialty board exams, for graduate students in physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, bioengineering, and nutrition, and for practicing physicians, dentists, pharmacists, nurses, and allied health practitioners who wish to update their general knowledge of organ systems physiology.

This question bank is not intended to replace the excellent detailed manuscripts and textbooks of physiology available, many of which were consulted during its preparation, but it is intended to examine comprehension of the basic principles of organ systems physiology. Indeed, flow diagrams and figures were intentionally omitted in order to encourage users to consult their textbooks and other resources when more detailed explanations are required.
