For your convenience, I have listed below the course description of Pathology I and II



Pathology I (9 credits)

Pathology introduces students to the cellular system of each organ and traces the morphological changes in a cell that are responsible for a disease in an organ.As cells undergo alteration, their change in function is studied in respect to its deviation from the "normal" state.


Course presentation includes the response of cells, tissues and organs to disease and injury; the normal and adapted cell; degeneration and necrosis, inflammation, fluid and hemodynamic derangements; neoplasia; immunopathology; systemic, environmental and nutritional disease. Lecture discussions are supplemented by a study of gross and microscopic specimens



Pathology II (12 credits)


Pathology II applies the basic concepts learned in Pathology I to continue the study of pathologic basis of disease using a physiologic system, or organ-based approach. This course covers red and white cell diseases, male and female genital tracts, and kidney and liver systems.


Course presentations include etiology, pathogenesis and morphologic changes in diseases according to organ system. Appropriate use of the laboratory is stressed in the diagnosis of disease while case presentations further emphasize the clinical aspects of the pathologic processes.
