This subject continues the study of pathophysiological processes contributing to disease. This subject focuses on pathophysiological processes associated with dysfunction of the nervous, endocrine, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems. Immune responses and wound healing are also covered in this subject. Relevant pharmacology is integrated throughout.

SYSTEMATIC PATHOPHYSIOLOGY AND ASSOCIATED PHARMACOLOGY
* Nervous dysfunction (coma, epilepsy, cerebrovascular acident, dementia, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma) and associated pharmacology

* Integumentary dysfunction (wounds, ) and associated pharmacology
* Reproductive dysfunction (infertility) and associated pharmacology
* Immune function (natural and acquired immunity, primary and secondary immune responses, humoral immune response, cell-mediated immune response), dysfunction (hypersensitivity, allergy, immunodeficiency (congenital and acquired), autoimmunity, alloimmunity) and associated pharmacology
