Teaching from Intemediate Physics for Medicine and Biology

How can you structure a class using the 4th edition of Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology? At Oakland University, we offer two classes--"Biological Physics" and "Medical Physics"--as part of our undergraduate medical physics major. Biological Physics covers the first 10 chapters of the book, and Medical Physics covers the last 8 chapters. Below is the information about these classes in our undergraduate catalog (Note: PHY 102 and 152 are the second semesters of the non-calculus and calculus based introductory physics classes, and MTH 155 is the second semester of introductory calculus):

PHY 325 Biological Physics (4 credits)
Applications of physics to biology, including biomechanics, fluid dynamics, statistical mechanics, diffusion, bioelectricity, biomagnetism, feedback and control.
Prerequisite: PHY 102 or 152, and MTH 155

PHY 326 Medical Physics (4 credits)
Applications of physics to medicine, including signal analysis, imaging, x-rays, nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging.
Prerequisite: PHY 102 or 152, and MTH 155
