Over the years I’ve worked on a variety of medical products. Everything from chiropractic gear to blood analyzers to pacemakers. As a result, my knowledge of physiology is scattered all over the place, from jr high school knowledge to somewhat deep, but only in very narrow areas. As I’d like to have a broader knowledge base, I’ve signed up for a number of MOOC classes across a range of disciplines. Granted, a MOOC experience will never bring about the same as one might get in a in-person classroom with lab experiences with live, or recently alive bits. On the other hand, I’ve gained a fair bit of knowledge over the years work wise, so it will be interesting to see how the pieces fit together.
