Foundation Sciences III is the first course in the curriculum that focuses on tthe underlying cellular and molecular basis of disease and is a critical component of a larger subject commonly known as Pathology. In its simplest terms, Pathology is the study of the structural, biochemical and functional abnormalities that develop within cells, tissues and organs resulting in disease.The disease process forms the core of pathology and includes: etiology, pathogenesis,lesions and clinical manifestations. Traditionally, Pathology is divided into general and systemic pathology. FSIII is the first of two courses (the other being FSIV) that collectively comprise the topic of general pathology.Specifically, FSIII will focus on: (1) the reactions of cells and tissues to abnormal stimuli leading to either adaption or cell injury and (2) pathogenic mechanisms responsible for disease development.
