Introduces students to the pathophysiology underlying human disease processes with an emphasis on cell injury, adaptation and death, genetic and congenital disorders, microbiological and immunologic factors, and neoplasia. Physiological pathology of the gastrointestinal, respiratory, nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, musculoskeletal and renal systems are foci of this unit
- Cell adaptation, injury and death
- Genetic and congenital disorders
Disorders of the:
- Gastrointestinal system
- Hepatobiliary system
- Respiratory system
- Endocrine system
- Musculoskeletal system
- Nervous system
- Cardiovascular system
- Renal system
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
