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.

An excellent overview
By Niki C. on 19. May 2022 for Acute vs. Chronic Inflammation

An excellent overview, brief and concise. Just the right amount of detail for an introduction is presented.

excellent review of the topic
By S C. on 09. May 2022 for Summary of the Molecular Basis of Cancer

very good summary slide. Its captures everything covered in the previous lectures in a succint and memorable way. I like that 6 keys points.

Very Enjoyable

It is SO FUN to watch Dr Mitchell! The amount of knowledge delivered so perfectly for me to digest is amazing. He takes you to the deepest of details with ease and maintains the solidity of the bigger picture in your mind (well mine at least). I have never had so much fun learning about the Coagulation cascades and their intricacies. Simply amazing!

Highly Recommended
