Phcy 412: Human Physiology/Pathophysiology II


The students will understand the consequences of disease on normal physiology, as well as physiological dysfunction as the mechanism of disease. An in-depth study of the pathophysiological condition will equip the students to assess multi-organ system dysfunction. Objective and subjective manifestations of common health problems resulting from the environmental, genetic, and stress-related maladaptations are assessed and analyzed. These basic understandings will enable the students to progress through the curriculum with a knowledge and analytical base necessary to excel during their clinical experiences. Ultimately, the factual material will provide the basis and rational for selective pharmacotherapy and the understanding of its use in varying disease states.
