- Course Description :

Medical Histology will cover the microscopic structure and function of human cells and tissues that make up the organ systems. The organization of cells and tissues are correlated with diagnostic imaging of normal and pathologic tissues. Clinical exercises will be used to develop “problem solving” and “critical thinking” skills..

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

- demonstrate an understanding of the microscopic organization and relationships of cells, tissues and organs of the human body;

-  identify cells and tissues and describe their functions; develop problem solving skills to evaluate both normal and pathologic structure and function of cells and tissues that comprise the organs of the human body; and

- demonstrate critical thinking skills to describe possible pathologic outcomes of dysfunctional cells and tissues.
