Curriculum

Staying Alive

SMD 8190

Co-Module Directors: Irina Overman, M.D.; Michael Matott, Ph.D.

Module Description: The Staying Alive module will focus on the relationships between the cardiac, respiratory and renal systems under normal and abnormal conditions. 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.
