96029 Ocular Pathology 16cp; 1hpw (lecture), 2hpw (workshop), clinical practicals are scheduled on weeks 2–14
There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
This subject takes a practice-oriented approach in applying the anatomical and physiological knowledge acquired in 96027 Eye and Visual Systems, to understanding common ocular conditions. In undertaking a problem-based learning approach to clinical case studies, students are introduced to the epidemiology, diagnostic procedures and management of some of the most prevalent ocular conditions including those arising from infective or inflammatory processes and age-related changes in anatomical structures. Fundamental concepts of investigation of ocular conditions explored in 96030 Introduction to Professional Practice are expanded to encompass the understanding and evaluation of new diagnositic technologies in the workplace. Learning in this subject is supported by the development of basic clinical skills relevant to ophthalmic investigation.
Autumn session, City campus.
