Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends people be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. A medical doctor who specializes in this area is known as a pediatrician or pediatrician.
OB/GYN: A commonly used abbreviation. OB is short for obstetrics or for an obstetrician, a physician who delivers babies. GYN is short for gynecology or for a gynecologist, a physician who specializes in treating diseases of the female reproductive organs. The word “gynecology” comes from the Greek gyno, gynaikos meaning woman + logia meaning study, so gynecology literally is the study of women. These days gynecology is focused largely on disorders of the female reproductive organs. An obstetrician/gynecologist (OB/GYN) is therefore a physician who both delivers babies and treats diseases of the female reproductive organs.
Biochemical studies have illuminated many aspects of health and disease, and, conversely, the study of various aspects of health and disease has opened up new areas of biochemistry. This relationship between medicine and biochemistry has important philosophical implications for the former. As long as medical treatment is firmly grounded in a knowledge of biochemistry and other relevant basic sciences, (e.g. physiology, microbiology, nutrition), the practice of medicine will have a rational basis that can be adapted to accommodate new knowledge. As all diseases are manifestations of abnormalities of molecules, chemical reactions, or processes.
The students will acquaint good and up-to-date knowledge about different types of Microscopes, Microtechniques, tissue culture, and karyotyping.
The students will acquire the skills required for staining and examining different tissues under a light microscope.
The student will be capable of obtaining at the end how the structure of each tissue in any organ adapts and serves its function.
Ultimately the students, after being familiar with the normal structure of different tissues, will be able to detect any pathological changes in the tissues on studying pathology later on.
The objectives of the pharmacology course are classified as general and specific. General objectives are those to be fulfilled by the end of the course, while the specific one is those connected with various parts of the course.
Medical Parasitology course for undergraduate medical students offers the basic knowledge of parasites’ morphology, life cycles with emphasize on infective stage to man, modes of infection of the parasites and their diagnostic stages.
This course provides basic knowledge and understanding of diseases through. elaborating their etiology, mechanisms, morphology, clinical features and complications. The course spans the gap between the preclinical and clinical subjects. It provides the students with the necessary information required for planning patients’ treatment and for developing proper preventive strategies.
Microbiology is the scientific study of living microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, and fungi), which are very small and simple in structure, yet their medical importance is great. Medical students need to learn the following most important aspects of microbiology in order to diagnose and treat microbiological infections successfully. Immunology is the scientific study of the immune system. The physiologic function of the immune system is a defense against infectious microbes. Medical students need to learn the following most important aspects of immunology to understand how the immune system prevent and eradicate an established infection
