BIOL 493 - Advanced Pathophysiology

3 hours
This is the first part of a two-semester series in understanding the pathophysiology of diseases. The student will be presented with an organ system approach to disease and how disease affects other organ systems (known as multi-system organ failure). Students will also learn the basics on how to read a complete blood count, chest X-rays, EKGs, and other common tests in medicine. Critical thinking and logic will guide the student to finding the breakdown of normal pathways that lead to disease. The more common diseases in the organ systems will be presented. This includes—but is not limited to—myocardial infarctions, heart failure, hypo- and hyperthyroidism, strokes, diabetes, emphysema, and ulcerative colitis.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 152 , BIOL 252 , BIOL 351 , and BIOL 361 ; post-baccalaureate pre-medical students only.
