Case Oriented Learning I - CAOL - 1121
Case Oriented Learning II - CAOL - 1122
Spans both semesters of the first year, introduces medical students to clinical problem solving through interactive and self-directed learning. The COL course uses problem-based learning and small group discussions to encourage intellectual curiosity and to facilitate approaches to problem solving that are essential for the practice of medicine. During the course students gain confidence and experience developing the habit of self-directed, life-long learning that is necessary to be a successful physician. In addition to providing opportunities to apply and integrate information from basic science courses, the COL course allows for reflective thinking on medical, scientific, psychosocial, and ethical issues surrounding specific clinical cases.
Cell & Tissue Biology - CBIO - 1312
Required of all first-year medical students. The structure-function relationships of human cells, tissues, and organ systems are described with an emphasis on the modern cell biological, biochemical and ultrastructural methods used to understand these close relationships. The material is presented in an integrated sequence of cell biology, basic tissue histology, organology, and endocrinology-reproductive systems. The unique modifications of the cell membrane, the cytoskeleton, the various subcellular organelles, and the characteristic molecular content of these structures as they relate to specialized tissue functions are noted throughout the course. (lecture, lab, and demonstrations). For the sake of continuity, the topics for this course are closely aligned with those in the physiology course and include some integration sessions related to specific disease process.
Genetics - HDEN - 1311
Required of all first-year medical students. An interdisciplinary assessment of gene structure and function utilizing current emphases and concepts that are common to the disciplines of Developmental Biology, Biochemistry and Medical Genetics and provide a scientific basis for understanding the genetic basis for disease. The course will consist of lectures, clinical conferences and student presentations.
Clinical Neuroscience - NEUR - 2321
Required of all second-year medical students. An extensive analysis of the morphological, physiological, and behavioral aspects of the human nervous system. Clinical conferences will be used to illustrate normal and abnormal mechanisms of neural function and structure. (lecture, lab).
Special Studies - ANTY - 8900
A course available to enrolled medical students that may be assigned only with the approval of the dean or the executive associate dean of the college. This course may be used to allow enrolled students to pursue special interests or projects within the department or to accommodate special situations that may arise
