Online Pathophysiology: Mechanisms of Diseases
BIOL 1030: Pathophysiology Online Class
Pathophysiology, BIOL 1030, is a one-semester upper-level undergraduate online course. It offers 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.
