Applied Medical Science 2 - MEDI913

In this unit, students will develop a foundational understanding of several body systems including the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems. Students will come to understand the biomedical sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, pathology, embryology, histology, microbiology, and pharmacology) and how they relate to the normal structures and functions of these systems as well as how these systems are altered in common or clinically significant disease states. Students will consider how the body’s inflammatory and immune responses contribute to pathology, as well as how drugs and other treatments are used to manage or prevent disease. Students will evaluate clinical case studies individually and in small groups to identify questions and learning needs, and will draw upon evidence from a range of sources (including medical scientific literature) to articulate responses to clinical scenarios.
