A functional foundation for disease.
This course is designed to provide the structural and functional characteristics of common and important diseases, as well as the principles of diagnosis and treatment. By understanding the anatomic and physiologic change of each disease, students understand the clinical methods of diagnosis, the manifestations of disease, and the appropriate method of treatment.
This course teaches human disease organized by body systems. Key structural and physiologic functions are introduced at the beginning of each lecture. Disease abnormalities are then developed from this foundation. Chapter topics include:
Lectures written by Dr. James Van Elswyk explore the depth of human disease accompanied by images, diagrams and detailed illustrations.
Students can review concepts using interactive flashcards. All cards are printable and mobile-compatible for on-the-go learning.
Chapter and cumulative reviews help students test comprehension and retention in preparation for exams and real-world applications.
Configurable and flexible timed exams make testing a trouble-free process for instructors and students. To help ensure exam integrity, we offer the Caduceus Proctoring service.
