Welcome to the course manangement site for KYCOM.
CAOM II 2015
Physiology is the study of the function of living organisms, especially of the mechanisms that maintain homeostasis despite changing environmental conditions. Medical Physiology addresses normal human physiology from the cellular to organ level, with an emphasis on homeostasis, integration and control. Within each of four blocks, student focus is on normal function of the system and its normal interactions with the other systems. In addition, student doctors are introduced to aspects of abnormal function in terms of how these disorders may be viewed as failures of the internal regulatory systems, or of their inability to cope with external interference. Physiology is very much a problem-solving discipline, requiring student doctors to apply information and connect concepts. Major class activities are lectures,case-based discussions and interactive problem solving sessions. The course goal of group sessions is to assist in application of physiological concepts and development of the problem solving skills needed to become highly qualified physicians. This course lays the groundwork for success in second year courses, particularly pharmacoloogy and pathology, clinical rotations and beyond.
Neuroanatomy plays an important role in medical education. It helps medical students understand Neurology and Psychiatry faster and better. Covering varieties of concepts like signs versus symptoms, afferent versus efferent, and examination versus evaluation help in honing clinical and diagnostic skills. Also learing about imaging technology like MRIs and CTs integrates and explains concepts that will be encountered in the clinical setting.
This course is designed to give a broad understanding of cell biology, microanatomy, and embryology, which collectively can be thought of as the foundation for courses such as physiology, pathology and obstetrics and gynecology. Microanatomy is often referred to as histology. Histology is defined as the study of tissues and was primarily presented as a microscopic view of the body’s tissues and organs. This field has expanded greatly in recent years so that it is much more than visual recognition of tissues. In this course students will still be exposed to cellular and tissue identification as well as cellular physiology. Basic embryology will be covered along with a clinical emphasis on birth defects. An attempt has been made to have lectures in this course correspond as much as possible with those in gross anatomy to give the students both the microscopic and macroscopic views of structures that are being studied.
This course presents the macroscopic structure of the human body using a regional approach. Emphasis is placed on the correlation between anatomical structure and function on the one hand, and clinical and imaging applications on the other. The laboratory includes such resources as cadaver dissection, bones, models, radiographs, MRIs, and CT scans.
Pathology is the study of disease. The study of pathology includes the cause of disease (etiology), the mechanisms by which a causative agent leads to disease (pathogenesis), and the structural and functional consequences of disease. In this course, the student will learn fundamental concepts in pathology that are universal to better understanding human disease. These concepts include but are not limited to cell injury and tissue repair, genetic and environmental factors, neoplasia, the role of the immune system, and hemodynamic mechanisms.
