Pathophysiology, BIOL2170, is a more in-depth study of the human body including the cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, urinary, endocrine, and nervous systems.  Students study disturbances to normal function, disease processes, the immune response, and the attempt to maintain homeostasis through integration of body systems. Students may expect to learn pathophysiology through classroom activities, discussion and case studies.

Pathophysiology is a three credit course for students in health career programs.  It is offered both on-line and on-ground.  The on-ground sections meet three hours per week.  The prerequisite for this course is successful completion of Anatomy and Physiology II, BIOL1141, with a grade of C or better.
