Requisite(s): 91400 Human Anatomy and Physiology AND 91500 Histology
These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses. See access conditions.
Anti-requisite(s): 91354 Anatomical Pathology
Students gain a basic knowledge of disease processes, the body's responses to them, and the light microscopic appearance of diseased tissues known as general pathology. This knowledge is further enhanced by authentic practice done in the laboratory using different dyes to highlight these disease processes in tissue sections used to assist diagnosis. These practical classes consolidate the learned theory by examining tissue sections with the maladies studied as well as the staining of tissues for specific hallmarks of these tissue disorders to assist in coming to a differential diagnosis. This subject assumes a solid knowledge of histology and basic stain theory learned in 91500 Histology, functions of the human body from 91400 Human Anatomy and Physiology and ties together all previously learned subjects, to present a deeper understanding of how the body responds to injurious stimuli. The graduating student is provided with a skill base to discriminate between normal and diseased tissue required for postgraduate study, work in hospital or private pathology laboratories, as medical representative for pharmaceutical or medical equipment firm or to undertake medical research and forensic investigations of human remains.
