|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
Available to graduate students with a degree in Veterinary Science (other appropriately
trained graduates may enrol at the discretion of the Director of the Australian Institute
of Tropical Veterinary and Animal Science).
This subject will address the mechanisms of disease processes. Thus, the general principles
of pathobiology are covered with particular reference to the changes at the levels
of cells, tissues and organs.
- describe and compare the difference between cell degeneration and death at the cellular
level and the mechanisms by which cells adapt to an altered extracellular environment;
- compare and contrast cellular changes and responses to a range of pathological conditions
such as necrosis, inflammation, repair, haemostasis, genetic disorders and neoplasia;
- explain in general terms the procedures routinely used in diagnostic pathology;
- critically evaluate the quality of pathological specimens;
- apply knowledge gained in this subject to solve simple veterinary science case studies.
