The Blood System course utilizes an integrative approach to examine the development, structure, and function of the main components of blood, with a focus on erythrocytes, leukocytes, thrombocytes, and clotting factors. The course explores the pathological principles of neoplasia and investigates disorders of the formed elements of blood, including anemias, disorders of leukocytes, and clotting disorders. Students will develop diagnostic skills for blood disorders and neoplasia by utilizing the results of diagnostic tests. Current treatment options for blood disorders and neoplasia will be discussed, with a focus on mechanistic modes of action and on adverse effects. Clinical problem solving will be used as a bridge to integrate the basic and clinical information into a practical wealth of knowledge that will serve as a solid foundation for life-long learning and delivering high-quality patient care.
