Goals and Diversity

Learning Outcomes

Outcome

Demonstrate a good working knowledge of the structure, function and relationships between major body organ systems, processes, and basic cellular structure and function.

Outcome

Discuss common pathophysiologies affecting the twelve major body systems: etiology, diagnostics, and medical device/combination product treatments.

Outcome

Understand the role of medical devices and combination products in diagnosing, mitigating, managing or curing medical diseases and conditions.

Outcome

Describe medical devices and combination products currently approved by the FDA to treat common pathologies and discuss their application and actual/potential modes of action and adverse effects.

Outcome

Demonstrate the ability to independently learn about the anatomic and physiologic basis of major organs and tissues, as they relate to the diagnostic and therapeutic uses of medical devices and combination products, through the completion and presentation of a Clinical Effects Analysis (CEA).
