ALHT 300 - Pathophysiology

Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Laboratory Hours: 0

Prerequisite(s): MATH 115  or equivalent statistics course, UNIV 300  

Restriction(s): None

Corequisite(s): None

The concepts of pathophysiology over the lifespan are covered in detail, including etiology and progression of disorders affecting cells (micro), organs (macro), and systems involved in the regulation of structure and function within the human organism. In addition to examining systemic disorders, the influence of genetics/heredity, race, ethnicity, environment, gender and age on physiological health will be explored.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Differentiate between physiologic and pathophysiologic processes
  2. Explore the physiologic basis for manifestations and adaptive responses of disease processes
  3. Integrate concepts of genetics/heredity, race, ethnicity, environment, gender, risk factors, and age with the etiology and pathophysiology of disease processes
