BIO 4352 - Introduction to Medical Physiology & Pharmacology I

Credits: 3 hrs

This course studies physiology, pharmacology, and disease processes in an integrated format, and provides the scientific basis for understanding of health and diseases at the molecular level. Emphasis is placed on normal bodily functions and the characteristic interactions of a drug and the body in terms of its absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion. The content of this course will consider deviations from normal (pathophysiology), where such discussions serve to clarify the basic principles. It will provide necessary linkage between the basic sciences and the clinical approach to disease processes.
