This is a two semester course designed not only to cover the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease, but also to develop the student's clinical reasoning abilities. It is intended to be a year-long board review and, as such, integrates the basic sciences with clinical topics. The course is taught in case-based format where student participation an initiative are crucial to success. Student evaluation is based on performance on board-type multiple choice examinations and class participation.
