Pathology 2A deals with general pathology. In three hours of lecture per topic, the student will be taught the reactions of cells and tissues to injury, hemodynamics, and inflammation and repair. Specific reactions to infectious agents, environmental toxins, and nutritional deficiencies and excesses will be discussed. The basic molecular concepts of neoplasia and genetic diseases will be introduced, as will the influence of the immune status on all disease processes.
Information learned in lectures will be reinforced by four hours of laboratory work per topic. Students will be able to directly visualize the pathologic changes discussed both microscopically and macroscopically. Characteristics of the lesions seen will be given in the yearly revised laboratory manual. Students will be asked to identify, draw and discuss the changes seen.
Pathology 2B deals with systemic pathology. In the three hours of lecture per topic, the student will be taught how specific disease processes affect particular organs or systems. Etiology, pathogenesis, morphologic changes and functional consequences of the disease will be discussed in detail.
Two hours of the four-hour laboratory will be spent reviewing microscope slides and gross specimens of the organ specific diseases. The other two hours will be allotted for clinico-pathologic case discussion to emphasize the correlation of lesions with clinical manifestations and laboratory diagnostic findings. Pathology 2A is a pre-requisite for this subject.
In order to prepare the student as a primary health-care physician, this course teaches them how to interpret laboratory findings and the skills required in performing routine laboratory examinations. The principles, methods, requirements and procedures as well as the clinical uses and significance of important laboratory tests will be given.
