Human Disease and Pathophysiology Course Overview
Are you interested in how God put our body together? Are you intrigued with how all our systems work together and how diseases can affect each of our systems?
This Human Disease and Pathophysiology class will cover each system of the body. We will discover the intricacies that God miraculously used while creating us. We will also discuss the disease processes that can occur within each system and how our body tries to fight them off.
This class is a great introduction to the human body and how it all works together. It is not the full Anatomy and Physiology class, but it will give you a wonderful insight into the amazing human body. This class will help prepare you for biology and anatomy and physiology, and can also be used to help after you take anatomy and physiology to really understand the disease processes that can occur within the body.
I look forward to helping you understand more about the body systems. I will be sharing many of my experiences and training with you to help you get a broader understanding of how our bodies work. We will talk about certain cases and how to work through a differential diagnosis of what may be occurring within a certain disease process. We will discuss laboratory results as well as clinician reports to help you understand the pathophysiology (what disease is occurring) within that system and the treatments that will hopefully help with the healing of the disease.
Please note: We will cover certain disease processes occurring with sexually transmitted diseases as well as mental illness. We will approach these topics from a Christian World view; however, I would encourage parental involvement in these chapters.
The Human Disease class will cover quite a bit of information. Mature Junior high students are welcome to take this class, but realize there will be a lot of information and sensitive topics will be covered.
