You may see me other times by appointment. Prerequisites for Renal Physiology Class: PHCH 331 (Cell Phys.), PHCH 305 (Biochem.II), PHCH 338 (Endocrinology), and PHCH 339 (CVP). Prerequisite for Other Courses: This course is a prerequisite for PATH 413 (Toxicology). Co-requisites: None Course Description: Physiological anatomy and basic renal physiology is presented in this course. Clinic application of kidney function test, plasma clearance is presented. Basic concepts relating to body fluid physiology are discussed. Emphasis is placed on presentation of the mechanisms used by the kidney to maintain the normal composition, volume and pH of the body fluids. Pathophysiology of the kidney in hypertension, nephrotic syndrome, edema, etc. is covered, if time allows. Course Learning Outcomes: Knowledge Student Will Posses: 1. Describe the basic physiology of the major parts of the kidney and the urinary tract. 2. Describe the functions of the nephron in epithelial transport. 3. Describe glomerular filtration, reabsorption and secretion. 4. Map the peripheral innervation to different parts of the urinary system. 5. Explain the formation, excretion and composition of urine. 6. Describe the regulation of body fluid physiology by the renal system. 7. Describe the regulation of body fluid osmolality. 8. Describe the regulation of acid-base balance by the kidneys. 9. Explain the role of kidneys in keeping sodium and potassium balance in the body fluids.

2 Clinical Competencies Emphasized: Renal Physiology course provides the knowledge base for understanding the homeostatic stability as it relates to correlation between structure and functions of tissues and organs involved in regulation of body fluid composition and the integration, as well as interrelationships between the different physiological body systems. This course offers information that is basic to various aspects of clinical competencies such as Physical and Neuromuscular Exam, some Diagnostic studies (e.g., urine analysis) and clinical implications, but not limited to these. It is expected that upon completion of the course, the student should be able to demonstrate the attitude and physiological knowledge bases of the clinical
