Renal and Alimentary 1 - MEDI202

You will build on the knowledge of macroscopic and microscopic structure of the urinary and digestive systems acquired in HLTH108. This unit offers an in depth, integrated study of these systems' anatomy and physiology. Mastication, deglutition and gastrointestinal motility, as well as digestion and absorption of nutrients from the tract, will be discussed. This unit will also cover the body fluid compartments, as well as urine formation in the kidneys, glomerular filtration, renal blood flow and their control mechanisms. Topics covered in this unit require students to apply their knowledge of the development, structure and function of the urinary and digestive systems to basic clinical scenarios. This unit provides a foundation for the more complex biomedical and clinical concepts, as well as integration of structure and function with the disease processes, presented in MEDI302.
