Credits 5.0
Introduction to basic concepts of pathology stressing altered cellular, genetic, and molecular mechanisms, and attempts to convey the dynamic nature of processes involved. By focusing on the organism as a whole system, the discipline of pathology can provide a bridge for transition by showing the interrelationship between basic scientific principles and the practice of clinical medicine. This approach provides a complete, medical overview of the disease process in relation to its histological, functional, and structural changes. Students have an opportunity to develop necessary skills to interpret and use laboratory data in describing and recognizing various types of injury to cells, tissues, and organs.
