Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Apply the principles of General Pathophysiology to human disorders and reparative states, describing how these general pathophysiologic processes impact on possible clinical courses and outcomes in an afflicted individual.
02. Explain cellular and biochemical changes that underlie the development of systemic diseases (i.e. Systemic Pathophysiology and relate these changes to the likely clinical course and outcomes of an afflicted individual.
