PT 520 - Pathophysiology I
(3 cr.) This is the first of three courses in pathophysiology. The focus of this course is to present a comprehensive investigation of common neurological disorders in the pediatric and adult population. A brief review of neural development and maturation is provided as a foundation for understanding specific cellular and system responses to neuronal injury or cell death. For selected neurological disorders the disease process is presented in terms of known pathology, known or potential etiology and risk factors, clinical manifestations, and medical management. This course is offered concomitantly with Applied Pharmacology I in which specific chemical agents used to treat the symptoms or cause of the neurological disorders are discussed. Every Year, Spring
