COURSE: 02-336 Case Studies in Human Physiology (1)
Designed to be taken in conjunction with Advanced Clinical Physiology (02-335), this non-traditional laboratory component looks at issues in medical physiology and systems function using the case study approach. Students are given medical/laboratory data from a “patient” and asked to apply knowledge of cell/organ/system function as well as feedback loops to provide potential diagnoses and treatment regimens. Cases are modeled after USMLE Step I (Clinical Board) testing. Lecture notes and outside readings provide the basis for assignments and discussion each class period. Prerequisite: 02-355.
