    Pathophysiology​   |   A&P

    Course Info:

    Pathophysiology is a year-long class where we learn about disease and how it affects each system in the human body. We learn through real-world case studies and collaborate in order to diagnose complex cases. You will learn in a classroom and science lab in order to give you hands-on, engaging, and rigorous material.​

    Anatomy and Physiology covers a wide array of topics throughout the human body. This class is fast paces and will be preparing you for a health science-related career path. My goal is for you to leave here knowing more about the world around and within you. You will learn in a classroom and science lab in order to give you hands-on, engaging, and rigorous material.



    Medical Microbiology

    Course Info:

    Medical Microbiology is a course where students will study how microorganisms cause infection, identification and control of pathogens, disease transmission, antibiotic resistance, and immunity. Students will learn safe laboratory practices so that they can confidently engage in laboratory investigations throughout the course.
