The Pathology course provides the students with the fundamentals of modern cellular and molecular pathology and will learn the basic principles of and the mechanisms of systemic and organ pathology. This course is intended to the understanding of the general principles, terminology, diagnostic procedures, and basic concepts of pathology. The course deals with the investigation of those pathological mechanisms common to all tissue: cell pathology; etiology, pathogenesis, morphologic changes, functional derangements and clinical significance. Attention is paid to the processes of cellular adaptation, cell death, cellular accumulation, tissue repair, inflammation, immunopathology, and neoplasia. It enables the students to understand how and why diseases develop, clinical manifestations appear, what the underlying mechanisms. This course is intended to the understanding of the general principles, terminology, diagnostic procedures, and basic concepts of pathology and will introduce to the study of the structural, biochemical, and functional changes in cells, tissues, and organs that underlie disease and the various pathological processes and their importance in the basis of human disease will be studied. At the end of the course the student will be able to understand the pathologic bases of common human health alterations and associated clinical manifestations and elucidate the pathophysiological principles underlying the pathogenesis and therefore treatment of the disease.

Histology, basic biology, microbiology, chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, immunology.

Etiology of disease; acquired versus inherited disorders,
Cellular responses to stress and noxious insults.
Cell injury and cell death necrosis and apoptosis.
Intracellular accumulations and calcifications.
Tissue renewal, regeneration and repair.
Acute and chronic inflammation.
Cell proliferation and tissue growth
Oncology
Vascular systems
Hemodynamic disorders, thromboembolic disease, and shock

The course objectives will be achieved through frontal lessons for a total of 48 hours. Given the vast area that this course covers, the attendance of the lessons is highly recommended.

The student must pass an oral exam that concerns questions related to the theory of general pathology; knowledge acquisition and understanding (40%) and application of the knowledge acquired (30%), making judgments (20%), communication skills (10%) and learning ability (20%).
