SECOND YEAR - SPRING SEMESTER

Course number: MED 20400

Course Title: Molecules to Cells I

Semester: Spring 2nd Year / 4 Credits

Course Director: Dr. Patricia Cortes

Course Description: This two-semester course (MED 20400 and MED 30500) is designed to provide

students with comprehensive and integrated concepts of biochemistry, cell biology, and medical genetics within a clinically oriented framework. Topics are presented with the aim that students will become aware of the contribution of cell and molecular biology and genetics to future developments in clinical diagnosis and treatment. Students are expected to acquire the necessary skills to integrate microscopic structure and cellular function, a prerequisite for other disciplines such as Human Development, Medical Histology, Physiology, Immunology, Pathophysiology, and other related areas. Session include lectures, small group discussions, and clinical correlations.

 

Course number: MED 20000

Course Title: Introduction to Human Genetics

Semester: Spring 2nd Year / 3 Credits

Course Director: Carol Moore

Course Description: This course in Medical Genetics emphasizes principles and methods of molecular genetics as they relate to human variation and disease, using specific genetic disorders and genetically-determined traits to illustrate key points. Topics include chromosomal and genomic structural variation, Mendelian inheritance and monogenic traits, non-Mendelian inheritance, complex genetic disorders, cancer genetics, and pharmacogenetics

 

Course number: MED 22409

Course Title: Population Health and Community Health Assessment

Semester: Spring 2nd Year / 3 Credits

Course Director: Christine Sheffer

Course Description: This course is the fourth Population Health course.  Its goal is to continue exploring population health and its importance for medicine, building from prior theory and practice, and methods courses. The focus of this course will be to discuss how population health and primary care intersect in the health care setting, and for students to explore how social and economic factors that predict health and disease patterns may also predict patterns of health services, and how access to health services influences health outcomes and population health statistics. The course is developed to provide students with an opportunity to expand and practice analytic epidemiology/biostatistics skills by completing a health services research project in small student groups. Data analysis skills that will be introduced
