Review of integrative human pathophysiology with an emphasis upon homeostatic mechanisms and etiologies of disease. The interrelationships of function and dysfunction at the molecular, cellular and tissue level (pathology), organ and systemic level (impairment) and to the total human body (functional limitations) will be applied in each of the body systems. Discussions and applied materials will be tailored to the physical therapist with an emphasis on clinical tools to medically screen patients for the presence of symptoms and signs that require the expertise of other health care professionals.
