Musculoskeletal and Hematopoietic & Lymphoreticular Systems II

This block includes two organ systems-based modules: The Musculoskeletal System module, part II, emphasizes clinical diseases and treatment modalities at a more in-depth level. Students use their knowledge of normal processes to relate this to disease states and the mechanisms used to treat conditions of musculoskeletal pathology and disease. The Hematopoietic & Lymphoreticular System module, part II, is organized to present the major themes of hematology, neoplasia, and immunity. The presentation of clinical hematology will revisit many of the themes introduced in the first unit of the module, revisiting basic science concepts to understand disease mechanisms. The presentation of immune mechanisms will be illustrated by disorders of the normal immune system and transplant immunity. Students will gain understanding of basic mechanisms and how they relate to pathology and treatment of neoplastic disease.
