Content emphasizes pathophysiological changes at cell-molecular receptor and systemic levels. Focuses on alterations in cell function and systemic manifestations by using selected contemporary, prevalent disease states. Key emphasis on specific pathophysiology as integrated neural, hormonal, genetic, immune, and inflammatory response. Etiologic mechanisms associated with cell deregulation and specific and nonspecific responses that combine to restore normal cell-tissue-organ function. Students enrolled for 3 credit hours receive additional instruction and work related to a particular patient population.
