This is the first of three courses covering human physiology and pathophysiology. In particular, this course covers the normal physiologic concepts, mechanisms and relevant anatomy involved in the healthy individual. In some cases, pathophysiology and disease mechanisms and presentation will also be discussed to add additionally layers of context to the material and how it relates with material presented in concomitant and subsequent courses. Additional clinical correlate and exam sessions will also be required components. Individual study and group work/presentations will be required. Time management, a high level of organization, team work and self-motivation are essential to success in this course.
