The aim of this subject is to apply and further advance knowledge and critical thinking skills that students have developed throughout their degree program. Students will be required to think across disciplines (including anatomy, physiology, cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, pharmacology, pathology, immunology and microbiology) in their quest to understand each disease mechanism. This subject applies problem-based learning (PBL) as its central tenet to promote active and self-directed learning.
