The goals of the Mechanisms of Diseases Course are to develop an understanding of the causes and mechanisms of disease and the associated alterations of structure and function and to develop skills of observation, interpretation, and integration needed to analyze human disease. When provided with the clinical history, the anatomical lesions, and the laboratory data of a patient, to determine the most likely diagnosis and explain the pathogenesis of the disease.

The electives are designed to give students direct knowledge of the central role pathology plays in the diagnosis of diseases, which are valuable for students going into almost any clinical specialty.
