COURSE DESCRIPTION MD1

Histology (11 credits)

The Histology course encompasses the study of microscopic anatomy of human cells, tissues, and organs. Emphasis is given to their functions and clinical significance. The laboratory hours provide the student with the opportunity to study stained and mounted sections of tissues and organs. Students also analyze high quality histological sections and electron micrographs projected on screen.

Gross Anatomy and Embryology (14 credits)

Human gross anatomy is fundamental to medical education, providing medical school students with the most basic foundation for medical practice. You will use this anatomical foundation throughout your medical career, and in virtually every realm of medicine, from research to practice to medical education. This course introduces you to the human body in two ways. First, classroom lectures provide both regional and systemic overviews of the human body. Second, laboratory sessions give you the privilege of dissecting the human body and its anatomical structures, allowing you to learn from direct experience the structures discussed in lectures and encountered daily in medical practice.

Embryology (6 credits)

The Embryology course is divided into General Embryology, which deals with the formation and development of germ cells, fertilization and early development of the human embryo; and Special Embryology, which deals with the formation and malformations of different organs. Medical Embryology is a fundamental course for different specialties of medicine, providing you with basic theory, knowledge and techniques, and helping you acquire the ability to understand, analyze and solve problems in other medical courses and clinical management of diseases. The course consists of a combination of didactic lectures and problem-based learning sessions.

Medical & Legal Ethics (4 credits)

This course has been designed to introduce the student to Medical Ethics, with emphasis on its role in clinical practice. The student is expected to demonstrate the ability to recognize ethical problems in a clinical situation and to propose a solution to difficult ethical issues, sometimes with incomplete data.

CCBS I (Clinical Correlation of Basic Science) (1 credit)

This course has been designed to introduce the student to case-enhanced problem-based learning. In this approach, fundamental knowledge is mastered by the solving of problems. Information is learned or reviewed by the student in an active learning mode and promotes lifelong learning. This case-enhanced style employs student initiative as the driving force for problem solving. The students’ group assumes primary responsibility for the process and the professor is a knowledgeable facilitator. Teamwork, open inquiry and critical thinking are emphasized. At this level, the list of clinically-oriented cases/topics is taken from the MD1 Subjects
