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) 
LO1 To teach what pathology is.
LO2 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.
LO3 To teach the process of the materials (both biopsy and cytology) in pathology laboratory
LO4 To teach how to store and savethe materials in the pathology laboratory.
LO5 To teach the mechanisms and etiologies of the illnesses in general.
LO6 To teach the adaptation mechanisms of the cells and the tumor biology.
LO7 To teach the basic immunologic mechanisms and the most leading immunologic diseases.
LO8 To teach the hemodynamic imbalances.
LO9 To teach the genetic disorders.
