Innovations in Medical Education: Major Organ Systems

Structure and Function of Major Organ Systems

The material presented in the Major Organ Systems (MOS) block is drawn from the traditional disciplines of biochemistry, histology, physiology, and nutrition to address the basis of human health from the molecular level to clinical applications. The student is expected to gain a basic understanding of the tissues and organs of the body in terms of their function and interrelationships. The various organ systems of the body are covered through a series of lectures, laboratories, and small group conferences. They include cell, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems, with an emphasis on an integrative approach to their study.
