Factors Affecting Study of Medical Physiology amongst Undergraduate Medical Laboratory Students.

Background: Medical Physiology is an interesting and important course to study at undergraduate and post graduate levels. Medical Physiology is a course that set the space for medical students. The aim of this study is to ascertain the likely factors affecting study of medical physiology amongst undergraduate medical laboratory students. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study carried out among students of medical laboratory student’s department. A total of 98 students participated in the study, (male = 53 and female = 45) with age between 16 to 40 years. The participated students were drawn from 100 level to 400 level. The study lasted for six weeks and well-structured questionnaires were distributed to them and one questionnaire per student to fill independently and thereafter, return it to the researcher. Statistical analysis of data was done using Microsoft Excel. P value < 0.05 was considered significant for data Results: The research shows that 98.97% of the students actually studied medical physiology and 97.62 of the respondents passed the course. 95.06% of the students passed medical physiology at first sitting while 2.47% passed at second sitting and 2.47% never pass the course at all. 75% of the respondents liked medical physiology and 25% never liked the course. Those students who never liked medical physiology give the following reasons: Insufficient number of physiology lecturers = 5.41%; Topics not properly taught = 24.32%; Too many topics to cover = 44.60%; Physiology course is too medical base = 6.76%; It has no relevance to medical laboratory science = 4.05% and Physiology course is too difficult to understand = 14.86%. Most of the students (58.65%) were faced with different challenges including too many other courses offered alongside physiology course. Conclusions: Medical Physiology is a course that set the space for medical students and other health related students and this could be the reason why greater percentage of the respondents studied and passed medical physiology at one sitting. Challenges encountered by students while studying medical physiology were: Poor lecture theatre, no practical session, too short semester calendar, and too many other courses alongside medical physiology.
