Renal and Alimentary 2 - MEDI302

This unit builds on the content and practical skills covered in CBMS104, MEDI202, MEDI205 and MEDI209 to develop in-depth knowledge of the structure and function of the renal and alimentary systems, with a focus on biochemistry, enzyme biology, nutrition, metabolism, and dietary balance. In this unit students will study major metabolic pathways and examine the hormonal mechanisms that regulate food intake, homeostasis and metabolism in both healthy and diseased states. Students will engage in discussions of disease processes and how they impact on integrated functions of the renal and alimentary body system. Students will have opportunities to apply their problem solving skills in clinical scenarios. Students will also explore ways in which scientific advances translate into clinical practice and learn to become a research-informed practitioner through engaging with relevant medical and scientific literature.
