Graduate Course 9561


Clinical Mammalian Histology

Course Outline and Schedule 2013/2014

Overview:

This course is a survey course of mammalian histology with emphasis on clinical applications relevant to health care professionals. The course expects and highly encourages student participation and uses tutorial-style microscopic exploration and demonstrations of histologically sectioned material available online as Virtual Slide Boxes (VSB).
Students are expected to come to each tutorial prepared as follows:
• Before each tutorial attend E-lectures from ACB3309 either face-to-face, or live/archived on Owl Sakai
• Review the weekly topics by reading suggested texts and online notes from ACB3309 provided on Owl Sakai
• Using the VSB, explore the sections to be studied that week
• Be prepared to present a clinical application of the histology covered

Recommended Texts:
• Histology, a text and atlas, 2011, Ross and Pawlina, Walters, ISBN:978-0-7817-7200-6
• Histology and Cell Biology, 2007, Kierszenbaum, Mosby, ISBN: 978-0-323-04527-8
• Netter’s Histology, 2008, Ovalle and Nahirney, Elsevier, ISBN: 978-1-929007-86-8
These texts have online student consult sites that may be useful for studying.

Note: If you already have a histology text there is no need to purchase the recommended texts. Any
other histology text is acceptable as well.
