  • Identify the association between health-related behaviors and diseases

About this course:

This course is designed to overview the mechanisms and consequences of disease, based on physiological dysfunction in the major organ systems. Each organ system is introduced by a brief and basic review covering normal structure and function, followed by the pathology and some common disorders of each system. Discussion includes common clinical presentations of disease and the mechanisms underlying signs and symptoms. Diseases covered include cardiovascular, cancer, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, hepatitis, infections and diseases of the kidney and cardiovascular system (some topics may vary by quarter). Basic college-level chemistry and biology and a human physiology course are strongly recommended.
