Learning physiology requires unhurried time to understand and deepen the appreciation for whole-body homeostatic mechanisms. To read slowly is to read thinkingly, to read and imagine conceptually, the integrative workings of multiorgan physiology. It is reading beyond descriptive facts, to see the priorities of diverse organ responses during adaptation to challenges to maintain homeostasis. Teachers have a key role to inculcate slow physiologic reading in their classes with students.
