This course begins with the trilaminar embryo stage and follows the development of the abdomen and pelvis, along with the organs therein. It will follow the expansion and rotations of the foregut, midgut, and hindgut, along with other associated organs of the digestive, immune, urinary, endocrine, and reproductive systems. Clinical conditions and various anomalies will be presented as they relate to the development.
You will outline how rotation, expansion, and migration allow the gut tube to create the distinctive regions of the foregut, midgut, and hindgut. Furthermore, you will get insights into how expansions of endoderm from the gut tube create the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and spleen.
Peter Ward, Ph.D. will show you how the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, adrenal glands, testes, and ovaries form and associate with specific ducts to create the internal male and female urogenital systems and you will identify various clinical or pathologic conditions can arise during these processes.
he made everything really clear.. it's hard sometimes to get everything by just reading embryology book, but thanks to him it's not that difficult :)
