Histology for the Health Sciences: Organ Systems
PATH X 406
A typical course taught across medical, dental, and allied health universities across the world, students in this course examine histological structure and cellular specializations of organs and organ systems of the body.
What you will learn.
- Understand the microscopic structure of organs, cells, and tissues of the human body
- Relate the functions of cells and tissues to those of the organs and organ systems
- Utilize innovative virtual microscopy tools to view histological sections of body tissues and organs
About this course:
All body organs are made up of combinations of the four basic tissues: epithelium, connective tissue, muscle, and nervous tissue. In this course, students apply the knowledge gained in prerequisite life science courses to examine the histological structure and cellular specializations of organs and organ systems of the body. This curriculum in histology is typical of what students study in any medical, dental, and allied health course at universities throughout the world. What makes this course unique is the opportunity for students to become engaged with innovative learning resources through a number of interactive tools presented within an online learning platform, coupled with modern online pedagogy. Another exciting feature is being able to view histological sections of body tissues and organs using innovative virtual microscopy tools.
