Forensic pathology is the study of death. The course in forensic pathology provides an introduction to the mechanisms of injuries and diseases and to the morphology and clinical characteristics of a broad spectrum of injuries and disease entities. In thiscourse we will aim to provide a foundation for the understanding of the injuries and disease states at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and organismal levels.
By the end of the course, we expect that you will have:
Sufficient data about basic disease reactions and organ specific reactions so that you can:
Interpret signs and symptoms elicited in a patient’s history and create a differential diagnosis
Sufficient knowledge of gross forensic pathology and histopathology so that you can:
Interpret findings at autopsy
Interpret forensic pathology reports
Intelligently review forensic pathology slides and images with a consulting forensic pathologist
An awareness of the role of the autopsy in medicine.
In addition, we expect that the unique format of this course will enable you:
To develop skills in self-directed learning, problem solving, critical reasoning, presenting data, and intellectual team work
To relate basic forensic pathology knowledge to clinical medicine
To read and assess with critical intelligence the current medical literature to facilitate life-long learning
