  • Overview

    Assessment: coursework [50%], unseen exam (2 hours) [50%]

    This module considers theories of human population change and the factors influencing population numbers and then looks at ways in which health and disease trends may be studied at the population level. Some of the epidemiological and global issues associated with infectious disease are also considered. The module then moves on to focus on pathophysiology beginning with a critical understanding of the pathological mechanisms of selected tissues, organs and systems. Understanding is developed in the context of the interrelationship between organ systems. The module is underpinned by the study of physiology and human disease at HE4 and 5 levels.
