About the Course
Pathology is the heart of clinical medicine since evidence based medical practice depends on the pathological/scientific basis of disease. The exact purpose of studying pathology is to learn a language that can describe the structural and functional changes occurring in disease so that one can understand and interpret the clinical signs and symptoms. So a thorough understanding of pathological processes is essential for medical practice. Disease entities and disease processes affecting various organs of the human body are detailed in this course.
In our endeavor to accomplish the purpose of providing a thorough review on general pathology, we have come up with this meticulous course in which a wide range of topics are covered that include, history of pathology, cell injury, acute and chronic inflammation, tissue repair, hemorrhage, shock and hemodynamic disorders.
High quality 3D animations are used extensively to present dynamic processes such as cellular adaptations, tissue injury and regeneration, inflammation and so on.

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.
