DSOM 5301 - Oral Diagnostic Sciences I (6 Credit Hours)

This course introduces principles of general pathology, as well as soft tissue disorders of the maxillofacial area. The general pathology topics include cell and tissue injury, adaptation, and death; inflammation and repair, infectious disease, immunopathology, genetic disorders and neoplasia. These topics are necessary to facilitate the understanding of systemic abnormalities discussed in BMCR 5301, BMRS 5301, BMGH 5301, and BMMS 5301/5402, as well as specific oral and maxillofacial disorders discussed in this course. The content and sequence are consistent with the Systems modules presented Fall D2. (Note that bone and blood systems are discussed in D2 Spring semester, therefore disorders of jaws and blood are not discussed in this course.) The etiology, pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of disorders affecting the soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial area are included in this course, such as injuries, infections, non-infectious inflammatory conditions and neoplastic disorders. The didactic portion consists of lectures and online content, followed by case-based seminars to facilitate the development of a skills in diagnosis.
