Online Pathophysiology: Mechanisms of Diseases

BIOL 1030: Pathophysiology Online Class

UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

This Patho­phys­i­ol­o­gy online class, BIOL 1030, is an intro­duc­tion to patho­phys­i­ol­o­gy designed espe­cial­ly to meet the needs of stu­dents prepar­ing for careers in the health pro­fes­sions. 

This online patho­phys­i­ol­o­gy 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.
