In an efficient and engaging way, the Pathology course delivers a fundamental understanding of ‘how and why’ people get sick. This comprehensive study explores a wide range of diseases and conditions prevalent in today’s society—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, arthritis—and the pathological processes behind them.

This course introduces the concepts of injury and departures from normal structure and function in the human body, as occurs in disease. The various pathological processes and their importance in the development of human disease are reviewed in depth. A particular emphasis is placed on the traumas and degenerative conditions affecting the Musculoskeletal System.

    Very good course! It gave me an understanding of musculoskeletal development and pathophysiology which I never acquired in my previous studies.

    The overall value of this comprehensive study is excellent, although it was difficult. This course took a bit of time to complete, but I liked the self-paced aspect.
