OSPOXFRD 59: Independent Study on Ethical, Legal, and Policy Issues in the Biosciences and Medicine

Research in depth and write an original research paper on some aspect of an ethical, legal, or policy issue brought up by advances in the biosciences or medicine. Student and instructor will define a topc and the instructor will suggest readings. Applications beyond the United States are encouraged. Possible topics include: revival of extinct species, regulation of genetically modified organisms, the role of neuroimaging in one or more legal systems, regulation of assisted reproduction, physician-assisted dying, health care rationing, control of pharmaceutical pricing, and possible changes to the definition of death.

PAS 201: Foundations of Clinical Medicine

This course explores fundamental concepts of biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and immunology as applied to clinical medicine in a mostly "flipped classroom" format. This course will help to establish a foundation for understanding the pathophysiology of disease and the targets for therapeutic interventions. Disciple-specific topics include: Biochemistry: thermodynamics, enzyme kinetics, vitamins and cofactors, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids and nucleotides, and the integration of metaboloic pathways. Genetics: basic principles of inheritance and risk assessment, illustrated with the use of clinical examples from many areas of medicine including prenatal, pediatric, adult and cancer genetics. Microbiology: Basic bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology, including pathogenesis and clinical scenarios associated with infectious diseases. Immunology: concepts and applications of adaptive and innate immunity and the role of the immune system in human disease.

PAS 212: Principles of Clinical Medicine I

This is the first in a four-course sequence presenting organ-system based physiology, pathology and pathophysiology. Each organ-specific block includes a review of the anatomy and related histology, normal function of that organ system, how the organ system is affected by and responds to disease, and how diseases of that organ system are treated. In PAS 212, the focus us on the structure, function, disease and corresponding therapeutics of several "primary care" topics, particularly the musuloskeletal and dermatologic systems. In addition, basic neurology otorhinolargyngology, and ophthalmology will be covered.

PAS 213: Principles of Clinical Medicine II

This is the second in a four-course sequence presenting organ-system based physiology, pathology and pathophysiology. Each organ-specific block includes a review of the anatomy and related histology, normal function of that organ system, how the organ system is affected by and responds to disease, and how diseases of that organ system are treated. In PAS 213, the focus is on the structure, function, disease, and corresponding therapeutics of the pulmonary and cardiovascular systems.

PAS 214: Principals In Clinical Medicine III

This is the third in a four-course sequence presenting organ-system based physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology. Each organ-specific block includes a review of the anatomy and related histology, normal function of that organ system, how the organ system is affected by and responds to disease, and how diseases of that organ system are treated. In PAS 213, the focus is on the structure, function, disease, and corresponding therapeutics of the Renal, Gastroenterology, Endocrine and Reproductive Health systems.

PAS 215: Principles of Clinical Medicine IV

This is the fourth in a four-course sequence presenting organ-system based physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology. Each organ-specific block includes a review of the anatomy and related histology, normal function of that organ system, how the organ system is affected by and responds to disease, and how diseases of that organ system are treated. In PAS 214, the focus is on the structure, function, disease, and corresponding therapeutics of the Neurologic, Psychiatric, Hematologic, Oncologic, and Autoimmune/Rheumatologic systems.

PAS 222: Clinical Therapeutics I

This course will provide a foundation for learning pharmaceutical therapies related to subjects covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine I course. In addition to general pharmacokinetic principles, the first segment of the course will cover the use of drugs applied to the skin and topical and systemically administered drugs for dermatologic diseases. Pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system, both sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions, will be overviewed in addition to gaining an understanding of how drug manipulation on cholinergic and adrenergic receptors modulate nerve activity. The course will conclude with an examination of drugs acting on the allergenic and pathogenic pathways as they pertain to ENT conditions.

Instructors: Nelligan, I. (PI)

PAS 223: Clinical Therapeutics II

This course will provide students a detailed comprehension of drug mechanisms and clinical drug therapies for cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases as covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine II course. The course will examine anti-hypertensive agents, drugs used for cardiovascular therapies. Clinical treatment for common pulmonary diseases including emphysema and asthma, in addition to the pharmacology of medications including bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory drugs will be discussed.
Terms: Spr | Units: 2
Instructors: Nelligan, I. (PI)

PAS 224: Clinical Therapeutics III

This is the third course of a 4-part series focused on pharmacology and clinical therapeutics with topics related to subjects covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine III course. Topics will include renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and men¿s/women¿s health. The pharmacology component will focus on mechanism of action, clinical use, contraindications, adverse reactions, and clinically significant drug interactions of various drug classes. The clinical therapeutics component will focus on medical management of diseases with an emphasis on patient specific drug management.
