113. Biomedical Issues in Pathobiology
(Formerly offered as PATH 113.) Second semester, alternate years (odd). Two credits. Frasca
This introductory course focuses on current global issues of health and disease to describe fundamental topics in pathobiology. Global biomedical concerns regarding infectious diseases, population, cancer, biotechnology and environmental health will be addressed. Course content will provide examples of the impact of veterinary and human pathology on world health issues.
195. Special Topics Lecture
Either semester. Credits, prerequisites, and hours as determined by the Senate Curricula and Courses Comittee. May be repeated for credit with a change in topic.
200. Anatomy and Physiology of Animals
(Formerly offered as PATH 200.) First semester. Four credits. Prerequisite: BIOL 107 or equivalent. Three class periods and one 2-hour discussion/laboratory period. Open to sophomores or higher. Bushmich
A study of the anatomy and physiology of animals with reference to pathological changes of the component parts of the body.
202. Health and Disease Management of Animals
(Formerly offered as PATH 202.) Second semester. Three credits. Prerequisite: PVS 200. Open to sophomores or higher. Bushmich
This course is designed for students who plan to own and work with domestic animals.
