Part 2 of a comprehensive study of human physiology with an emphasis on regulatory mechanisms. This course includes the physiology of the cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, renal and digestive systems. It is assumed that students have a basic knowledge of chemistry, physics and biology.

Course Component: Lecture

Students are strongly advised to complete PHS 3341 before taking PHS 3342. Formerly PHS 3240.

PHS 4100 Human Physiology and Mechanism of Disease (6 units)

Lectures and discussions of selected topics in pathophysiology. Students will need to have acquired an understanding of normal physiology and the concepts involved therein. Attention will be paid to review of the principles involved in normal physiology. This course will then focus upon the etiology of the diseased state and underscore the causes and mechanisms of deranged physiology, preventative measures and corrective therapy. The topics covered will include the cardiovascular system, the gastro-intestinal tract, the respiratory and renal systems, neuromuscular and central nervous function, the endocrine and reproductive systems.

Course Component: Lecture
