Kursens syfte The aim of the course is to enable doctoral students lacking basic higher education knowledge in medicine to understand basic pathological events, such as tissue injury, repair and inflammation and their relation to the development of diseases, and how these alterations are coupled to the microstructure of pathological tissues.
Kursens lärandemål After the course the student should 1) understand the mechanisms behind basic pathological events; 2) be able to identify selected pathological tissues at light microscopical level and describe the components/cells and their functions; 3) be able to search for and combine information regarding a selected group of diseases, followed by an oral presentation and discussion.
Kursens innehåll The course is divided into two parts. One part illustrates cell injury, adaptation, tissue repair and inflammation. Methods in cellular and molecular pathology are discussed. During the other part of the course a selected group of diseases are studied both during microscopy practices and as a written and an oral presentation. How basic pathological responses to inflammation or injury might be the first steps on a multi-step path to malignancy is also discussed.
Arbetsformer This is a full time course with lectures, demonstrations, microscopy exercises and a project work.
Obligatoriska moment Demonstration/microscopy, pathology "tour" and project work are compulsory. Absence is compensated with a written report.
Examination Written examination and project work.
Kurslitteratur och övriga läromedel Recommended literature: Basic pathology : an introduction to the mechanisms of disease, by Lakhani, Sunil R., Hodder Arnold (2009) London
Antal studenter 16 - 30
Urval av studenter Selection will be based on 1) documented knowledge in areas such as human tissue biology, cell biology or physiology (this kind of knowledge is a prerequisite to be able to benefit from the course). Those who already have studied pathology earlier (for example medical doctors) are not prioritized. 2) Date of admission to doctoral studies (priority given to earlier registration date).
