First-Year Courses
  • ANAT 606 Medical Neuroanatomy (6 cr.) Normal structural and functional organization of the human central nervous system as a background for the interpretation of its dysfunction. Assumes prior knowledge of human gross anatomy and general physiology. Taught as a four-week block in the spring semester. McCaughey
  • ANAT 631 Medical Histology (5 cr.) Normal and abnormal developmental processes related to the differentiation of tissues and organs; microscopic study of organs and tissues as background for physiological and pathological consideration. Taught as a four-week block in the fall semster. Ganion
  • BIOL 642 Medical Microbiology I (6 cr.) Microbiology for medical students. Considers bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses as agents in human disease and the immunological and serological aspects of the host-parasite relationship. The course also emphasizes molecular and cellular immunology, and the roles of immune processes in health and disease. Taught as a six-week block during the spring semester. Webb and Walker
  • BIOL 667 Medical Biochemistry I (6 cr.) Chemistry of major cellular constituents; enzymes as the catalysts of intracellular chemical reactions, with emphasis on underlying principles of physical and organic chemistry and molecular biology. Taught as a five-week block during the fall semester. Fromm and Pederson
  • PHYS 640 Medical Physiology (6 cr.) Provides a concise summary of mammalian and human physiology for medical students. Review of cellular physiology; comparative physiology included where pertinent. Overall organization based on coverage of the organ-systems type. Taught as a six-week block during the spring semester. Bishop
  • X 600 Introduction to Clinical Medicine I: The Patient-Doctor Relationship (2 (48 hrs) 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. 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. Adrian, Routh, and Williams
  • ANAT 601 (601L) Human Gross Anatomy (7 cr.) A strong background in basic morphologic and functional relations. Emphasis on regional anatomy. Taught as a seven-week block during the fall semester. Wilkins
Second-Year Courses
  • MGEN–Q 641 Medical Genetics (2 cr.) A comprehensive course in human genetics, emphasizing the principles of general and molecular genetics and their application to clinical medicine through family history, clinical findings, and laboratory studies. Litt
  • MSCI–X 641 Introduction to Medicine (22 cr.) A multidepartmental course designed to introduce clinical medicine. Includes medical history taking and physical examination skills learned at the bedside with direct patient contact. Clinical medicine is surveyed concurrently with emphasis on pathophysiology and diagnosis. Problem-solving skills are stressed, including synthesis and interpretation of medical data. Staff
  • MSCI–X 642 Biostatistics (1 cr.) Biostatistics for medical students; basic statistical techniques and their application to medical problems are introduced. Zimmerman
  • PATH–C 643 General Pathology (4 cr.) Introduction to mechanisms of disease through demonstration, lectures, laboratory, and conferences; emphasis on basic concepts and principles of disease processes. Kim
  • PATH–C 644 Systemic Pathology (8 cr.) Presentation of pathology by organ systems with emphasis on etiologic factors; evolution of lesions; pathologic, physiologic, and clinical correlations. Kim
  • PHAR–F 644 Pharmacology (5 cr.) Lectures, quizzes, laboratory. Drugs classified as to site and mechanism of action; representative members of each class of drugs discussed; rational clinical uses emphasized. Zimmerman
