Purpose of the course 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.
Intended learning outcomes 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.
Contents of the course The course is divided into two parts. One part illustrates cell injury, adaptation, tissue repair, inflammation, cancer development and classification. Methods in molecular pathology are discussed. During the other part of the course a selected group of diseases are studied both during digital 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.
Teaching and learning activities This is a full time course with lectures, demonstrations, microscopy exercises and a project work.
Compulsory elements Demonstration/microscopy, pathology ""tour"" and project work are compulsory. Absence is compensated with a written report.
Examination Written examination and project work.
