Class Schedule: T R 3-4:15 in STARR 136 3 Credit hoursCourse Description:
A study of general principles and causes of disease and resultant abnormal physiological functions of the organsystems. Included are discussions on cancer, aging, inflammation,stress, cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory, endocrine, excretory,digestive and musculoskeletal system dysfunction.
Prerequisites:
BIOL 205 and CHEM 124
Required Materials
:Understanding Pathophysiology, Huether and McCance, 3
rd
, 4th, or 5
th
edition. The 3
rd
edition is cheaper and contains 99% of the materialcontained in the 4
th
or 5
th
edition.
Course Objectives:
1.
Describe alterations in physiological function in humanorgans and systems.
2.
Determine physiological changes from normal and thecause of this change.
3.
Analyze physiological responses to illness and disease.4.Describe internal and external factors that affect specificphysiological states along the health and illnesscontinuum.5.Apply knowledge of pathophysiology to case studies.
 
Grading Policies:
There will be three scheduled exams, each of which are listed onthe course schedule. The exams will test your mastery of materialcovered since the previous exam, with the final exam combining thematerial from the last exam as well as having a comprehensiveportion.2 Exams @ 100 points each1 Final Exam @ 200 points

GRADING SCALE:
 The total points achieved by the student in this course will beconverted into a percent total and the final grade will be determinedaccording to the following scale:93 - 100 = A73 - 76.9 = C90 - 92.9 = A-70 - 72.9 = C-87 - 89.9 = B+67 - 69.9 = D+83 - 86.9 = B63 - 66.9 = D80 - 82.9 = B-60 - 62.9 = D-77 - 79.9 = C+Below 60 = F This is a set scale and will not be changed.
