Cellular Pathology

by Richard Mitchell, MD

The study of pathology—or, more specifically, the understanding of the origins of disease—requires preliminary knowledge of basic cellular functions that prevent the breakdown and tearing of the cellular machinery and allow for adaptation to environmental stimuli.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the main structures and features that allow for a cell to carry out its day-to-day functioning effectively. As the course progresses, relevant clinical entities will be brought up for discussion.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry.

Different disease processes express themselves with different degrees of sensitivity and specificity in a patient’s tissues. It’s the responsibility of a clinician to grasp the pathophysiological steps behind the most basic disease processes (e.g., inflammation) in order to see the links to the signs and symptoms encountered during the physical examination.
