MCLIN 230 - FOUNDATIONS OF DISEASE AND THERAPY

[72 Hours]
The Foundations of Disease and Therapy course is interdisciplinary, with contributions from the departments of microbiology, pathology, and pharmacology. The course provides students with fundamental concepts of disease processes (e.g. inflammation, repair, regeneration, and neoplasia), infection (e.g. the nomenclature, classification, structure, and virulence of micro-organisms), and therapy (e.g. pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, receptor mechanisms, and transduction). Principles of diagnostic and radiologic testing will also be discussed. Clinical case discussions are used when appropriate. This course provides the foundation for subsequent learning in the sophomore year systems courses.
