Histology 2 - Organs and Systems

Histology 2 - Organs and Systems NBIPMOD10

Module description: This module continues on from the basic introduction to histology given in Histology 1. In this module the student will explore structure function relationships in all of the major organs and systems. These will include the respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, urinary, male and female reproductive, endocrine, integumentary and immune systems and also includes a brief consideration of the formed elements of blood. The module has both theory and practical components. The practicals will consist of directed use of a virtual microscope to examine examples of the tissues covered in the module. On completion of the module each student will be able to recognize and identify microscopic sections of tissues and organs, identify their cellular and non-cellular components, and explain how the architecture of each of the organs contributes to organ function.
