COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
A.  Describe visible, palpable or radiographic lesions using appropriate
   terminology.
B.  Recognize early pathologic changes in the oral cavity in order to
   intercept progression to later stage disease.
C.  Describe the usual signs, symptoms, prognosis, population
   distribution etiology and therapy for each of the various disease
   entity's in class.
D.  Synthesize information from clinical, radiographic, historic,
   laboratory, surgical and therapeutic sources and use this
   information to participate in formulating a differential diagnosis.
E.  Recognize the significance of systemic diseases to oral health and
   apply this knowledge to patient care planning.
F.  Describe the biologic mechanisms of the acute and chronic
   inflammatory responses and their relationship to pathologic
   conditions in the body and to the healing  process.
G.  Describe the unique mechanisms of the immune response and how it
   functions in health and disease.
H.  Describe the normal development of the orofacial region and the
   pathologic processes that may occur during this development.
I.  Describe the cellular and tissue alterations which accompany benign
   and malignant neoplasms.
J.  Discuss the diagnostic process and treatment options for various
   neoplastic conditions.
K.  Recognize the process by which genetic abnormalities may produce
   oral and systemic pathology.
L.  Describe the variety of patterns of inheritance and how each type
   might be expressed.
