Physiology II (10 ECTS)

This course aims to introduce students to the structure and function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary and digestive systems, linking basic medical sciences with clinical medicine. It covers such topics as: cardiac rhythm, blood and lymph flow, circulation, mechanics of the heart and lungs, gas exchange, respiration, renal function, pH regulation, urination, digestion, absorption, gastrointestinal motility, physiology of the liver, the gallbladder and the pancreas.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, students should be able to discuss the molecular and cellular pathways responsible for physiological processes as well as how their dysregulation leads to the generation of pathology.
