    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Webster is extremely knowledgeable and eager to help! There is a lot of information and while a lot of it is review, there is still a lot to cover. She goes extremely fast through the material but will break it down even further for those who don't understand. Like any other course, it's best to read the material before going to the lecture, but in all honesty, it is possible to get through one class without feeling completely lost because she covers so much information. The exams are fair but definitely harder than the quizzes. There are 4 quizzes, 4 studies, and 4 exams. The 4 quizzes require a good amount of studying, but only cover half of the information on the exams. The 4 studies are open book group projects that basically force you to review the material and preview important concepts before the exams.

    Course highlights:

    Upon completion of this course the student will be able to: • Define basic terms and parameters related to normal and abnormal physiology • Describe the basic manifestations of pathological conditions and their relevance to the disease process • Identify diseases caused by or contributed to by genetic factors • Describe structure abnormalities and their relation to origin of disease in body organ systems • Describe metabolic imbalance as a cause or contributing factor of disease origin • Identify environmental factors and their effect in the pathogenesis of disease • Discuss components of the immune system as part of preventive processes and in case of disease • Identify diagnostic, clinical assessment, and interventional techniques appropriate for diseases common to each body system • Improve on professional communication and critical thinking skills

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask questions! Go to every class and pay attention! Powerpoints are great, but look at her key points!
