|Poster Title:||Introductory Physics for the Life Sciences Courses|
|Abstract:||The Physics Department at Misericordia University consists of three full-time faculty members and several adjuncts. The department offers courses taken by the majority of health sciences students and all life science students. Pre-Doctor of Physical Therapy (Pre-DPT) majors enroll in two semesters of algebra-based introductory physics. Occupational Therapy majors take the first semester of the sequence using an integrated lecture & lab format. Medical Imaging majors take the second semester of the sequence taught in a traditional format with separate lecture and lab. Speech-language Pathology majors take a one semester physical science course taught in an integrated lecture & lab format. Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, and some Medical Science students take two semesters of calculus-based introductory physics.|
