This subject extends the concepts and examination of disease commenced in second year Pathology (PATH20001, BIOM20001) with a focus on the following areas: cellular and molecular aspects underlying fundamental pathogenic mechanisms in organ specific pathologies.
This subject is available to both B.Science and B.Biomedicine students.
Science and Biomedicine students intending to take a major in Pathology are required to enroll in PATH30001 (this subject), PATH30002 and PATH30003.
Biomedicine students intending to take the Defence & Disease major MUST consult the Major Information Booklet.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject students should have:
• extended and deepened their understanding of the fundamental concepts involved in pathology, begun in second year.
• developed an understanding of the cellular and molecular bases of a variety of disease processes and their relationship to normal cellular and molecular structure and function.
At the end of this subject students should have developed the following skills:
- the ability to understand and link complex overlapping and related ideas.
- the ability to source, organise, read and understand reference material which covers a wide range of related and diverse topics about disease.
