This pathophysiology course provides an in-depth study of human pathological processes and their effects on homeostasis. The course is designed to promote the understanding and application of disease processes in the clinical settings. General concepts of disease include etiology, pathogenesis, and clinical significance. Pathophysiological concepts include cell injury, necrosis, inflammation, wound healing and neoplasia. These concepts are applied in a systems-oriented approach to disease processes affecting musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, renal, nervous, gastrointestinal, immune, hematological, neurological and endocrine systems.

NOTE: The intention of this master course syllabus is to provide an outline of the contents of this course, as specified by
the faculty of Columbia College, regardless of who teaches the course, when it is taught, or where it is taught. Faculty members teaching this
course for Columbia College are expected to facilitate learning pursuant to the course learning outcomes and cover the subjects listed in the Major Topics/Skills to be Covered section.
However, instructors are also encouraged to cover additional topics of interest so long as those topics are relevant to the course's
subject. The master syllabus is, therefore, prescriptive in nature but also allows for a diversity of individual approaches to course material.
