Online Pathophysiology: Mechanisms of Diseases
This online BIOL 1030 course is an introduction to pathophysiology designed especially to meet the needs of students preparing for careers in the health professions.
This course focuses on the changes in cellular and systemic physiology that occur in prevalent or important medical conditions. At the cellular level we will cover the responses to tissue injury, abnormal cell growth, and the immune system. From there we will investigate the physiological basis of problems associated with most of the major organ systems. In each case we will discuss the effect upon whole body homeostasis.
