Pulmonary

Pulmonary is a 4-week course that integrates the structure and function of the pulmonary system with disease processes. It provides students with fundamental understanding of normal and abnormal functions as well as disease processes. These fundamental insights prepare students to appreciate major diseases of the pulmonary system. This course reinforces and advances the foundational understanding of therapeutic modalities. Students are introduced to diagnosis, including medical imaging and other diagnostic techniques, and treatment of diseases of the pulmonary system. Small group sessions use clinical case study to illuminate fundamental principles of biology and therapeutics.
