Pathology is literally “the study of disease”. Knowledge about human diseases comes from observations made on patients (clinical pathology) – looking at the causes and mechanisms of disease, and the effects of disease upon various organs and systems or in experimental studies on tissues, cell cultures or animal models (experimental pathology). Courses in Pathology (Pathology 3240A and 3245B) introduce basic disease mechanisms and their appearance in specific organ systems (e.g. the heart, lungs and brain). Senior level courses present more advanced concepts in both clinical and experimental pathology.
