9. OBJECTIVES By the end of the course, the students are expected to :

1.  understand the common terminologies used in pathology.

2.  understand the aetiology and pathogenesis of diseases and correlate it

with clinical presentation.

3.  describe the pathological changes in diseases and apply it for making

diagnosis.

4.  explain the effects and complications of diseases.

10. LEARNING OUTCOMES Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

1.   explain the common terminologies used in pathology (LO1, C2)

2.   discuss the aetiology and pathogenesis of disease (LO1, C2)

3.   describe the pathological features of diseases both macroscopically and microscopically (LO2, C3, P3)

4.   discuss the effects and complications of disease (LO1, C3)

5.   correlate the pathological process with clinical features (LO3-CTPS, C4, A2)

11. TRANSFERABLE SKILLS
  • Interpretation of basic laboratory investigations
  • Correlate the clinical manifestations and the underlying pathological processes
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Effective communication
  • Teamwork
  • Lifelong learning
12. TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY Teaching-learning strategy:

  • Lectures
  • Student-centred learning – Self learning package (SLP)
  • Fixed learning module (FLM)
  •  Tutorial ( small group interactive sessions)
  • Practical (Hands-on sessions)

 Assessment strategy:

  • Formative  assessment
  • Summative assessment (end semester, mid sem II and professional examination)
13. SYNOPSIS Combining general and systemic pathology, this course will educate students with a comprehensive overview of human diseases in terms of abnormal conditions of the body, their causes, accompanying functional and structural changes and termination of human diseases.

Diseases of organ systems, emphasizing the causes, process with special attention to the morphology as well as clinical state of the disease are also covered. These areas include cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the blood and lymph, pathology of respiratory system, diseases involving urinary system, endocrine system, musculoskeletal system, gastrointestinal system, hepato-biliary system and nervous system. Teaching methodology will be via lectures, tutorials, practicals and student centred learning. Students are assessed through formative and summative assessment.
