Open.Michigan Initiative, University of Michigan Free Health and Welfare Endocrine Endocrine physiology Endocrine system Endocrinology Hormones Human reproduction

This sequence provides the information and opportunities necessary for students to acquire integrated knowledge of the structure and function of the endocrine and reproductive systems in humans. Although all of the biological systems are clearly interrelated, the endocrine and reproductive systems are intimately linked. Much of what you learn about hormonal control and steroid biochemistry of the endocrine system will be referred to and used in teaching reproductive physiology.

Understand the differences between foreground and background questions and the implications for the types of information resources best suited to answer these questions. Become familiar with the U-M information environment, and learn to effectively search several core biomedical resources to answer specific clinical questions. Develop an understanding of the basic foundations of biostatistics, research design and epidemiology to begin to apply scientific data to the understanding of clinical conditions. Effectively and logically apply probabilistic reasoning to diagnostic questions that arise in patient case scenarios.

Open.Michigan Initiative, University of Michigan Free Health and Welfare Dna Genetics Genomics Medicine Open Educational Resource RNA

The Patients and Populations sequence focuses on genetics, principles of disease, epidemiology, information gathering and assessment. The sequence features two modules: Medical Genetics and Medical Decision-Making. The growing awareness of the central role of genetic factors in the causation of human disease has made genetics one of the most rapidly developing fields in medicine. Much of this progress has been propelled by advances in the area of molecular genetics and genomics, advances that, in turn, have been applied directly to the diagnosis and management of disease. The objective of this course is to present the basic principles of medical genetics and their application to clinical medicine, with the intent of providing students the necessary background to understand ongoing developments in genetics and their application to clinical problems. The elucidation of the human genome, and the genomes of multiple other organisms, will change the way medicine is practiced. In order for physicians to understand these developments and utilize them for the benefits of their patients, they will have to be conversant with molecular genetic technologies and the technologies for acquiring, organizing, and interpreting new information.
