The course describes the role of rehabilitation in promoting neuroplasticity and recovery following nervous system impairment.
7 PT 212 Medical Microbiology
Medical Microbiology is a science that deals with the study of living organisms that can not be seen by the naked eye and cause diseases in humans. Medical Microbiology is a large and diverse group of microscopic organisms that exist as single cells or cell clusters; it also includes viruses, which are microscopic but not cellular. This course provides learning opportunities in the basic principles of Medical Microbiology and infectious disease. It covers mechanisms of infectious disease transmission, principles of aseptic practice, and the role of the human body’s normal microflora. The biology of bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic pathogens and the diseases they cause are covered.
Human Anatomy is a single comprehensive course with various branches such as: – Gross Anatomy, Developmental Anatomy (Embryology), Cytology, Histology, Histochemistry, Genetics, Neuroanatomy, etc.
Medical Physics is a branch of applied physics that employs physical concepts for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease. It is a truly diverse field that utilizes the knowledge gained in other areas of physics and applies it to heal people.
This class is for students who are interested in learning the basics of care,
prevention, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Students will learn basic
anatomical joint structures, major muscle groups of the human body and the skeletal system.
Human Physiology is a single-semester, 4-credit-hour course designed to provide students with an understanding of the function, regulation, and integration of human body organ systems. Emphasis is placed on homeostatic maintenance in health as well as in some disease processes.
This course will explore the fundamental physiotherapy practices and the critical role the physiotherapist assistants play in this profession. We will study the assessment methods a physiotherapist uses to evaluate a client’s wellness and level of impairment. In addition, we will research various branches of physiotherapy such as neurological, respiratory, sports, and musculoskeletal physiotherapy.
It focuses on histology, anatomy, and physiology of the major organ systems found in the human body. Nutrition and evolution are also discussed. Students gain an understanding of the structure and function of the human body on a variety of complex levels.
