1) Summarize the most common diseases in each body organ system and their causes.
2) Visually recognize gross lesions in different organs and recall the disease/s associated with them.
3) Visually recognize histopathology tissue changes in different organs and recall the disease/s or types of injury associated with them.
4) Explain the pathogenesis leading to the formation of the different tissue lesions and the pathogenesis of different diseases.
5) Explain how lesions in tissues produce different clinical signs and clinical disease.
6) Interpret clinical problems, diagnostic testing results and pathology findings and to make a specific disease diagnosis or to create a short differential list of diseases that best explain the findings.
7) List diagnostic test/s needed to confirm a disease diagnosis or to differentiate different diseases on a differential diagnosis list.
8) Associate disease severity (MILD MODERATE SEVERE) with variations seen in clinical appearance, clinical pathology data and your ability to recognize a disease ante mortem or post mortem.
9) Integrate information you learned previously with information provided in this course and be able to apply this to medical problem solving.
10) Be able to list for different diseases the expected signalment, chief complaint, history, physical examination, routine clinical pathology results (CBC, clinical chemistry, UA, fecal), ancillary tests (EKG, radiographs, ultrasonography), and pathology findings.
11) Apply pathology terminology correctly that are organ system specific or non-organ system specific.
12) Interpret correctly pathology reports for surgical biopsy, cytology and gross pathology.
