PHM 503 Foundations of Human Body and Disease III & Patient Assessment Lab III



3.0 Units

This foundational course is the third in a series designed to develop an understanding of anatomy, pathology, physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacological concepts of disease as they pertain to each organ system. Students will also gain knowledge and skills required to elicit, perform and document a medical history and physical exam with use of appropriate equipment, proper exam techniques and accurate medical terminology. The student will learn to differentiate between normal physiologic variation and disease states. A blended approach (lecture, small group discussion, multimedia) with an interprofessional laboratory is used for presentation of the material and skills development.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of prior quarter coursework or program permission.
