or consent of the course director

This course was originally designed for advanced

practice nursing students in anesthesia (SNRA).
Clinical Physiology II welcomes academically strong
undergraduate students, particularly those majoring
in physiology and interested in allied health careers.
Cellular mechanisms, disease states and clinical applications of
metabolic systems relevant to:

Gastro-intestinal Tract

Pregnancy and Labor

PHSL 5197

Dr. Alessandro
Bartolomucci, Course
Thursdays 2:30 -3:20pm.
Grade is based on participation
during weekly meetings and
paper presentation.
This class uses a journal club format to examine stress physiology.
There will be a focus on stress-induced pathology with attention to
cardiovascular, metabolic, neuroendocrine disorders including:
Role and Foundations of Stress in Physiology
History and Current Views of Stress Physiology
Development of Stress and Related Disease.
Classical and New Mediators of Stress.

Contact Dr. Bartolomucci, for a class

permission number if you wish to register for this spring
semester class.

PHSL 5444

Dr. David Thomas (BMBB), course director

3 credits
Tuesday and Thursday 4:00 - 5:15 pm
An introduction to the physiology, biochemistry, biophysics,
and pathobiology of muscle.
Lectures and reading assignments will be designed to provide the
student with an understanding of current knowledge and models of
muscle structure and function.
Emphasis will be placed on interdisciplinary research that has
contributed to our understanding of muscle function and
malfunction at the molecular level.
Typical classes include students from Biochemistry, Physiology,
Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Kinesiology, Pharmacology,
Chemistry, and Biophysical Sciences, as well as extension students
from local biomedical companies.

PHSL 5510

Dr. Paul Iaizzo, course director

This is a 5-day short course taught January 6 -10, 2014.
There are 2 and 3 credit options


Provide an overview of the physiology and anatomy

underlying cardiac function
Provide details on cardiac microcirculation, cellular
function and oxygen delivery
Provide students with an understanding of cardiopathophysiology and current clinical treatments
Allow students to perform dissection within the Human
Gross Anatomy Lab
Provide students with various demonstrations on monitoring
cardiac function

PHSL 5525

Dr. Mark Cook & Dr. Stephen Katz, course

This is a 3-day short course taught January 15-17,
There are 1 and 2 credit options
The course focuses on the anatomy and physiology of
the pelvis, perineum, and urinary system.
The course has a strong anatomical bias towards the
pelvis and perineum, but will delve more deeply into
the physiology of the urinary system.
Some time will be spent considering common pelvic
dysfunction (including incontinence, prolapsed and
erectile dysfunction) and urological pathophysiology.
