VMLL 1060 - Physiology and Pathophysiology

  • Noncredit

This course will provide an overview of the normal physiology of major mammalian organ systems as well as physiologic perturbations associated with disease states. The course is designed to provide a mechanism-oriented understanding of normal and disease processes in humans and companion animal species. Some emphasis will be placed on cellular and molecular mechanisms that form the current basis of understanding of normal function and disease states.

The course will help clinical resident trainees and graduate students gain a broader understanding of the physiologic basis of clinical medicine and translational medical research.
