BIOH12008 Human Pathophysiology

Course details

This course develops an understanding of disease and dysfunction from an anatomical and physiological perspective, with emphasis on integrating knowledge of tissues and organ systems into a holistic framework of body function and dysfunction. It will provide the student with a strong theoretical perspective on the mechanisms of normal and altered functioning of human cells, organs and organ systems. Using a comprehensive study guide with reference to additional readings, course content is presented in a way that fosters a critical and conceptual foundation emphasising the integration of organ systems and their functioning within the body. Particular emphasis is placed on the widespread effects upon other systems following dysfunction of a particular organ or system of the human body and the ability to discuss specific disorders in relation to general concepts of dysfunction.
