There are several specific areas of pathology. Anatomical pathology is based on disease analysis and diagnosis through examination of body organs, tissues and internal body parts. Participants learn to use anatomical pathology when conducting autopsies and studying disease and infection. Within anatomical pathology, there are several areas of concentration, including forensic pathology and surgical pathology.
Clinical pathology courses train you to use scientific analysis to determine the causes and results of disease. We will use principles of biology, hematology and biochemistry to research diseases.
Focuses on various organ systems and their functions. Cellular function and metabolism is covered.
Prepare for pathology careers by teaching the basic duties and skills required of pathologists. These skills include conducting research, analyzing biological and anatomical evidence, preparing laboratory and medical reports and collecting specimens.
Examines diseases in relation to the healthy body and the pathophysiological processes that occur when disease is present. Learn about defensive, compensating and adaptive responses to the presence of disease by various body systems.
How to maintain an effective medical laboratory. The processes and duties involved with laboratory management, which include the maintenance of lab supplies and equipment, regulation and safety policies, use of computers to record data and proper use of medical instruments.
Major infectious organisms and the way in which they affect the body. Emphasis is on significant episodes of emergent infections and the current technology in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases.
Explores inferential and descriptive statistical methods as related to health care data analysis including formulating hypotheses, utilizing the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, or SPSS, and understanding the results of the statistical findings.
Genetic diseases, cloning, stem cell research, gene therapy and genomics. Students learn about the human genome project, the human transcriptome project and the human proteome project.
Medical terminology and general pathology, and includes in-depth study of pathobiology in relation to diseases in humans as well as the pathology of organ systems.
Parasitic infections and diseases as well as prophylactic treatments. Other topics include diagnostic mycology, collection methods, parasite identification, disease prevention and environmental concerns.
