Course title
General pathology

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1. Understand the principles of general disease processes including using the terminology of lesion.
2. Define lesions and group lesions with reference to the general classification of lesions: cellular pathology, pathology of blood flow and circulation, inflammation and repair, immunopathology and disorders of growth.
3. Describe pathological changes and explain fundamental pathogenetic mechanisms leading to the changes.
4. Understand the process for tissue slide production and staining. Understand the application of molecular techniques for visualization of specific markers on tissue slides.
5. Distinguish between normal and pathological cells, tissues and organs, both microscopically and macroscopically. Diagnose lesions observed in pathological cells, tissues and organs.
6. Explain the apparent pathogenesis/mechanisms causing lesions in cells, tissues and organs.
7. Describe lesions in cells, tissues and organs with the correct terminology.
8. Discuss the etiology and pathogenesis of lesions and evaluate and discuss histopathological diagnoses.

Content
Introduction to pathology and pathological techniques, including demonstration of necropsy findings, conventional histochemistry, immunohistochemistry, and in situ-hybridization.
General pathology with focus on the morphological changes in relation to cytopathology, pathology of blood flow and circulation, immunopathology, infection, inflammation and repair, and disorders of cell growth. Introduction to histopathology, gross pathology and in situ visualization techniques.

Participants
PhD-students with a background in life sciences/biology without knowledge of pathology but with basic knowledge of cell structure and function.
