Course Objectives Under disease circumstances to provide information about the structural and functional changes of cells, tissues, organs.
Course Content The four aspects of a disease process that form the core of pathology are its cause ( etiology), the mechanisms of its development (pathogenesis), the structural alterations induced in the cells and organs of the body ( morphologic changes) and the functional consequences of the morphologic changes (clinical significance).
Learning Outcomes (LO) LO-1 To teach what pathology is. LO-2 To teach the positions that they can take in a pathology laboratory in the future and the responsibilities in a pathology laboratory as a tecnician. LO-3 To teach the process of the materials (both biopsy and cytology) in pathology laboratory LO-4 To teach how to store and savethe materials in the pathology laboratory. LO-5 To teach the mechanisms and etiologies of the illnesses in general. LO-6 To teach the adaptation mechanisms of the cells and the tumor biology. LO-7 To teach the basic immunologic mechanisms and the most leading immunologic diseases. LO-8 To teach the hemodynamic imbalances. LO-9 To teach the genetic disorders. LO-10 To teach the tumor biology. LO-11 To teach the environmental pathology.
