Curriculum

Balance, Control and Repair

Co-Module Directors: Mark Rich, M.D., Ph.D., Neuroscience, Cell Biology, and Physiology; Bethany Harper, M.D., Psychiatry; Paul Koles, MD, Pathology

Module Description: The Balance, Control, and Repair module will focus on the normal structure, function, and diseases of the nervous system, musculoskeletal and integumentary systems and the mind.  Throughout the module, the learner will solve increasingly complex clinical case problems that exemplify core pathophysiologic concepts and make decisions about diagnosis and treatment that are evidence-based. Presentation and diagnosis of illness and disease across the life cycle are investigated within the principles of population medicine, molecular biology, pathophysiology and therapeutics.
