OM 1006: Endocrine/Reproductive System I

Class Program
Credits 4

The Endocrine/ Reproductive System I is designed to teach the basic principles of hormone secretion and action related to the major endocrine structures and reproductive and systemic tissues. Students are expected to be familiar with the structure and function of the major endocrine glands and the action of the major hormones secreted. This course will focus on the anatomy, histology and physiology of endocrine and reproductive systems as a basis for understanding the pathological conditions resulting from endocrine dysfunction. Upon completion, students should be able to use the basic principles of endocrine and reproductive physiology in clinical applications and to fulfill medicinal knowledge competencies. Material which has been previously covered will be integrated into the coursework and used to build the framework needed to be a competent osteopathic physician.
