Human Systems: Gastrointestinal Pathophysiology
In this three-week block, students are introduced to the major pathophysiologic mechanisms that underlie illnesses of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, pancreas, liver, and gallbladder. Teaching exercises range from lectures, providing current and clear explanations of pathophysiologic principles, to tutorial cases discussing common gastrointestinal problems. Pathology laboratories emphasize both the gross and microscopic pathology of a variety of GI diseases. Minicases sessions and focused discussions are distributed throughout the course to emphasize and expand the coverage of important concepts. The course follows a logical progression from the esophagus to the rectum and then from the pancreas to the liver and gallbladder. If you would like more information on the course you have selected please go to MyCourses.
