This subject takes an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to the study of organ function and dysfunction in animals. Building on students' prior knowledge and experience of scientific thinking, this subject introduces students to the structure and normal functioning of the digestive, metabolic, excretory and cardiorespiratory systems, and to the principles of dysfunction of these systems. Students will be introduced to the clinical disciplines of pharmacology and therapeutics, diagnostic imaging and clinical pathology. Using case-based teaching approaches, students will apply their understanding of organ and system function and dysfunction to authentic situations that enhance the development of integrative clinical reasoning abilities.
At the completion of this course students should be able to:
Two 2-hour written examinations at the end of Semester 1 (37.5%)
Two 2-hour written examinations at the end of Semester 2 (37.5%)
Two 1-hour multiple-choice tests during semester 1 (5%), indicated in the teaching timetable; approximately weeks 5 and 11 respectively.
Two 1-hour multiple-choice tests during semester 2 (5%), indicated in the teaching timetable; approximately weeks 6 and 11 respectively.
One clinical seminar that demonstrates the ability to integrate concepts across different discipline areas and organ systems and to communicate these concepts to a diverse audience; presented on-line in video format via the Faculty's VOCE site. To be satisfactorily completed by each student by week 8 of semester 2. (15%)
Students are required to pass the subject on aggregate mark.
