- Summary: Clear written description of the article’s key points or summary of the ideas. This should be summarized in 1-2 paragraphs.
- Relation to course objectives: Summarize normal physiological processes, following by the pathophysiologic concepts that relate to the article topic in an organized and detailed manner. Examples: If I summarized an article on CRISPR/Cas9 technology, I might explain DNA structure and RNA replication and genetic disturbance such as muscular dystrophy, which could be impacted by this technology. If I summarized an article on heart failure treatment, I might explain the neuro-hormones involved in fluid volume balance, the RAAS, catecholamines. Please see the rubric, I expect to see things discussed at a cellular and systems level.
