About the Course
Problems of digestive system can very quickly cause a significant amount of discomfort. Fortunately enough, a large number of gastrointestinal disorders are largely preventable with simple lifestyle changes.
Majority of the gastrointestinal disorders have a striking pathological basis that needs to be studied by the clinician in order to institute the best possible treatment. This course on gastrointestinal pathology caters to this requirement. It discusses the pathological basis of diseases affecting various gastrointestinal structures such as oral cavity, hepatobiliary apparatus and bowel which include but not limited to, aphthous ulcer, gastroesophageal reflux disorder, gastritis, gastric carcinoma, hepatitis, infections, malabsorption syndromes, inflammatory bowel syndrome and tumors of the small and large intestine. The underlying pathological process of each disease along with the gross and microscopic features of organs affected are all presented very well with the help of graphics and animations.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast-paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
