Digestive and Renal Systems I

This block includes two organ systems-based modules: The Digestive System module, part I, introduces the basic science and functions of the gastrointestinal system. Important principles of the basic sciences are used to support early consideration of clinical cases in semester 2. Further understanding is developed by consideration of a PBL case, and clinical nutrition and sensitivity content. Clinical presentations and treatments of digestive system diseases will be the focus of the Digestive System module, part II, in semester 4. The Renal System module, part I, describes the structure, function and control of the human renal system, and its contribution to the maintenance of homeostasis. This module also introduces how the renal system is affected by common diseases, as well as the basic principles of assessment and treatment of common renal disorders. Clinical presentations and treatments of renal diseases will be the focus of the Renal System module, part II, in semester 4.
