IN PERSON: This course will begin with a brief overview of medical history and then give an introduction to medical terminology. From that point, we will move on to the various body systems, discussing their anatomy and physiology. Each week a different system will be introduced and some diseases associated with that system will be covered. We will follow a lecture format, with ample time reserved for your questions. Some case studies appropriate to the system under discussion will be presented. Students will gain a better understanding of the body, how it works, and what can go wrong. Occasional bits of medical humor will be injected into each class. Several general interest books on the topic are recommended. | Lecture + Q&A.
Max enrollment: 24.
