  • ANAT–D 504 Histology (5 cr.) Lectures and laboratory study of the microscopic structure and function of cells, tissues, organs, and systems of the human body. Histogenesis and multidisciplinary sections on cell biology and endocrinology are included.  The course also covers general embryology from fertilization until 8th week of development, structure and function of placenta and fetal membranes as well as basic teratology.  Wojcik
  • ANAT–D 505 Neurobiology (5 cr.) A study of the anatomy, functions, and clinical aspects of the human nervous system.  The format includes lectures, laboratory, problem-solving sessions, clinical correlations, and reports. Competency III (Using Science to Guide Diagnosis, Management, Therapeutics and Prevention) and Competency VIII (Problem solving), Level 1, are evaluated in this course.  McGraw
  • BIOC–B 800 Biochemistry (5 cr.) This course provides a fundamental understanding of current concepts in human biochemistry, cell and molecular biology that are relevant to medicine. This course instructs medical students on how to apply the study of molecular biology and metabolism to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Lectures are provided by practicing biomedical scientists and clinical professionals and complimented by individual student research projects and independent study. The competencies addressed and evaluated in this course are Competency 1 (Effective Communication) and Competency 4 (Life-long Learning). Seetharamaiah
  • IMMU–J 601 Medical Immunology (2 cr.) The course includes lectures and student presentations of case studies covering human immunology from a biomedical perspective. The course concentrates on the fundamentals of innate and adaptive immune responses, followed by a focus on immunodeficiency diseases, hypersensitivities, autoimmune diseases, transplantation, tumor immunology, and manipulation of immune responses. The course is designed to develop level 1 proficiency for Competency III, "Science in Medicine", and Competency VI, “Social and Community Contexts of Health Care”. Teaching team: Anne McLaughlin, M.D., Majed Koleilat, M.D., Jason White, M.D. and course director, Carla J. Aldrich, Ph.D.
  • MICR–J 602 Medical Microbiology (4 cr.) The course includes lectures and case studies covering the topics of virology, microbial physiology, pathogenic microbes and parasites, disease pathogenesis, antibiotics and anti-virals, and host-pathogen interactions. Competency III, "Science in Medicine" Level 1 is addressed and evaluated in this course. Upon completion of this course, students should be able to use science to guide diagnosis, management, therapy, and prevention of infectious diseases. Teaching Team: Emilian Armennu, M.D., Carey Walker, Ph.D., Michael Russell, Ph.D. and Course Director Carla J. Aldrich, Ph.D.
  • PHSL–F 513 Physiology (9 cr.) A study of human function. Elements of homeostasis, excitable cells, circulation, digestion, respiration, and excretion are discussed at the molecular, supra-molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, organ system, and organismal levels. Lecture, team-based learning exercises, and discussion. Stith
  • X 600 Introduction to Clinical Medicine I: The Patient-Doctor Relationship (60 hrs.) (3 cr.) A multidepartmental interdisciplinary course designed to introduce students to the patient-doctor relationship through interactions with faculty and patients in a variety of settings. In small groups facilitated by primary care and behavioral science faculty, students direct their learning toward the complexity of the context from which a patient seeks medical care. In order to achieve this, students examine normal human behavior and development throughout the life cycle. Issues addressed include preventive health care, sexuality, cultural diversity, minority health issues, religion and spirituality, family dynamics, the economics of health care, and death and dying.

Second-Year Courses
  • MGEN–Q 661 Medical Genetics (2 cr.) A comprehensive course in human genetics emphasizing the principles of genetics and their application to clinical medicine through the family history, clinical findings, and laboratory studies. Examples of specific problems, their evaluation, and genetic counseling will be used to supplement didactic material. Baath
  • MSCI–X 661 Introduction to Medicine (21 cr.) This course provides an introduction to the principles of patient interviewing and the physical examination, followed by the clinical application of these principles. Lectures are also provided by clinical faculty in surgery, obstetrics, psychiatry, surgical subspecialties, and the subspecialty topics of internal medicine. Eubanks and Clinical Faculty
  • MSCI–X 662 Biostatistics (1 cr.) An introductory syllabus geared to the teaching of the fundamentals of statistics. The primary purpose is to provide students with the ability to critically evaluate the reliability of biomedical data found in the literature. Stith
  • PATH–C 663 General Pathology (6 cr.) Introduction to mechanisms of disease through demonstrations, lectures, laboratory, and conferences; emphasis on basic concepts and principles of disease processes. Rose
  • PATH–C 664 Systemic Pathology (4 cr.) Presentation of pathology by organ systems with emphasis on etiologic factors, evolution of lesions, pathologic physiology, and clinical correlations. Rose
  • PHAR–F 664 Pharmacology (6 cr.) Comprehensive lectures, discussions, reviews, and laboratories with emphasis on the principles of drug action. Representative members of the most important groups of drugs are discussed in detail with regard to sites and mechanisms of action, and ‘‘dry’’ laboratories are designed to involve the student in various types of pharmacological problem-solving skills.
