Most Frequent Study Style: Understand and application of concepts

Student Feedback:

  • Keep up with lectures; make cue cards, study charts, etc.

Anatomy & cell biology 3309

Description: A detailed study of the cellular and microscopic structure of the various tissues and organ systems of the body, with emphasis on man and other mammals used in medical research. Systems are examined stressing the relations of structure to function.

Anatomy & cell biology 3319

Description: A description of the structure of the organ-systems of the human body: the nervous system and special senses, musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems.

Physiology 3120

Professor: Woods and Stavraky

Description: A survey of the physiology of various systems (e.g. neural, endocrine, renal, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, etc.) of the human.

Average Course Rating: 6

% of People Who Would Recommend: 100

Textbook Readings Required: Yes

Most Frequent Study Style: Understand and application of concepts

Student Feedback:

  • Stay on top of lectures and use study guide

Physiology 3140

Professor: DiGuglielmo, Bai, Rylett, Pin

Description: A survey of principles of cellular physiology including membrane, ion channel, receptor, and transport protein function, and signal transduction mechanisms.

Average Course Rating: 6

% of People Who Would Recommend: 100

Textbook Readings Required: No

Most Frequent Study Style: Understand and application of concepts

Student Feedback:

  • Know all the details; tests include short answers which involve drawing structures, so study for that

Pathology 3500

Description: An introduction to human pathology - the study of disease. Students will be introduced to general mechanisms of disease (e.g. inflammation, injury, neoplasia, disturbed hemodynamics). These general processes will be described and applied to specific diseases of organ systems.

Pathology 3700

Description: The focus is on the various research approaches, disease models, experimental designs, and analytical methods used to study and evaluate human disease. The course will use contemporary learning tools and a variety of evaluation and assessment methods. Examples will be taken from major diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.

Biology 3316

DescriptionThe functional organization and physiology of cells with special reference to cellular membranes, energetics, cell motility, cell specializations, and cell-cell interactions. The course is based on the interpretation of experimental observations.
