Course Convenor: Dr Adele Woolley
Teaching contributions come from the Departments of Pathology (OSM), Biochemistry (BMS) and Department of Surgical Sciences (OSM).
- Teaching Arrangements
Key principles of pathology will be presented in lectures, which will be illustrated by scientific principles and clinical consequences of disease. Reading material will be recommended to supplement the lecture and to provide an alternative learning mode for students who do not learn well in a lecture setting.
The laboratories will be used to provide visual and hands-on experience to augment learning.
