In the course of General Pathology and pathophysiology are delineated the most important aspects of modern cellular and molecular pathology, as well as multicellular pathologic processes regarding degenerative, inflammatory and neoplastic conditions. Cellular physiopathology and the mechanisms underlying the pathology of specific organs and integrated functions are also considered.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student is expected to: ● Have sufficient information to understand, describe and recognize the causes and the pathogenetic mechanisms of human diseases, as well as the aetiopathogenesis of the most important alterations affecting the structures, the functions and the integrated controlling mechanisms of the organism. ● Know how to examine the biological and molecular aspects of the main human pathological conditions taking the cell as reference. ● Know how to go from the most basic cellular features to tissue damage and the possible consequences on alterations of body homeostasis (disease). ● To be able to update his/her knowledge also by reading qualified scientific journals
