The Reproductive System module, part I

The Reproductive System module, part I, encompasses the anatomy, histology, and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems. Included are lectures on genetics, the development of the male and female genitalia, and the gender-specific differences of the human sexual response cycle. The changes associated with ovulation, fertilization, pregnancy and the postpartum period are included to provide a global perspective on women’s health. Androgen replacement therapy and female contraceptive options are also discussed. The module concludes with an integrated lecture that presents the clinical challenges of diagnosing persons afflicted with infertility and the treatment options offered with modern advanced reproductive technologies. Clinical presentations and treatments of reproductive diseases will be the focus of the Reproductive System module, part II, in semester 4.
