Course contents *
In the part about medicine first medical terminology, anatomy, histology and genetics is discussed at a general level. After that basic overviews follow, organised after classical system physiology: nerve and muscle, pain, circulation, respiration, kidney and fluid balance, digestion and nutrition, endocrinology and reproduction. The acquired physiological understanding is finally used to study general pathology.
In the part about medical engineering diagnostics and treatment are discussed, as well as the relationships with the technical methods that are used within physical diagnostics, clinical physiological diagnostics, clinical neurophysiology, radiological diagnostics, internal medicine and treatment, surgery, intensive care, obstetrics, oncology and medical physics.
Intended learning outcomes *
The course is intended for persons without traditional medical education that needs a basic medical knowledge for usage in the working life, e.g. students in medical engineering. On completion of the course, the aim is that the student should be able to:
* Define and use basic medical terminology and language
* Define and describe at a general level the basics of histology and anatomy
* Describe and explain the function and anatomy regarding the different organ systems in the human body
* Describe aetiology, symptom and treatment for more important diseases in the different organ systems
* Describe and explain medical engineering methods for diagnostics and treatment
* Compare medical engineering methods regarding basic physical principles and field of use
* Apply the acquired medical engineering knowledge on medical issues
