IMSP 512S Medical Biochemistry 8.0 Credits

Medical Biochemistry is the study of how fundamental biological processes work at the chemical level and how they are regulated. To help students develop an appropriate mastery of the field, the structure and function of biomolecules, molecular biology, and metabolism are presented using a combination of large-group lectures, small-group conferences, and self-studies. The emphasis is on clinical relevance, and the underlying assumption is that knowledge of biochemistry is essential for understanding the causes of manifestations of human illness, as well as the rationale of therapeutic strategies.

IMSP 513S Biochemical Basis of Disease 8.0 Credits

Biochemical Basis of Disease is a study of the basic principles and regulatory processes governing the chemistry of life with a special emphasis on changes that occur as a result of a pathologic condition. The purpose of the course is to provide rigorous training in the biochemical systems and pathways needed to understand clinical medicine. The pace and content-level of the course is designed to be similar to that given to a first year medical student; in fact many of the large group lectures will be taken from an actual first year medical biochemistry course. We will compare and contrast normal biochemical pathways/systems to a wide variety of different pathologic conditions, ranging from lead poisoning to inherited metabolic disorders.

IMSP 522S Function of the Human Body I 3.5 Credits

This course is designed to provide you with the fundamental concepts in human physiology for your future as a healthcare professional. This information will be categorized into seven sections across two semesters. In the spring term Pulmonary, Gastrointestinal, Renal, and Reproductive Physiology will be covered. We will primarily focus on normal physiological function of the major human organ systems but will introduce pathophysiology when it reinforces or highlights a particular physiological mechanism. To accomplish our goal of helping you help yourself learn and integrate this material, we use various approaches including lectures, lecture notes, learning objectives, readings from textbooks and primary sources, group conferences, clinical case examples, and formal self-studies.

IMSP 542S Cell Biology and Histology I 5.0 Credits

This course describes the tissues of the body with an emphasis on the structure of normal cells, their specializations and methods of acting together to form tissues and organs. The normal structure-function relationships at the subcellular, cellular and tissue levels are emphasized. This course provides students with a framework for recognizing and interpreting the changes seen in disease states.

IMSP 544S Basic Immunology I 1.5 Credit

The Basic Immunology course is designed to provide a foundation in the basic concepts of immunology and then illustrate the role of the immune system in clinical medicine. It commences with the important components (cells, tissues, antibodies, immunoglobulins, and cytokines) involved in regulation and host defense against infectious agents. Introductory lectures serve to describe and differentiate between innate mechanisms and adaptive immunity mediated by functional B and T lymphocytes and their products. B cell and T cell activation, regulation, and tolerance will be described. Cellular interactions between cells and the cytokines made by helper T cell subsets and other components of the immune system (B cells, CTL., NK cells, macrophages, eosinophils etc.) will be integrated.

Repeat Status: Not repeatable for credit
Restrictions: Can enroll if major is IMS.

IMSP 552S Fundamentals of Nutrition and Diet 1.0 Credit

The goal of the course is to introduce some of the basic concepts of nutrition, to familiarize the student with the complexities of the issues with in-depth considerations of selected nutrients, and to consider the role of nutrition in a few clinical situations. This is intended to be a base upon which to build a more complete understanding of nutrition as topics with nutrition content arises formally and informally in the student's future. It is impossible even to introduce the entirety of the science of Nutrition in so short a time. Hence, a modest number of important topics have been chosen to be studied in detail, in the hope that if the student knows these well, the student will be able to deal more easily with the complexities of other areas.
