Organ Toxicology

Aim of the course

To provide insight in pathophysiology of organ systems, with emphasis on the liver, the kidneys, the respiratory system, the nervous system, bone, the endocrine system and the blood system. To learn to apply this insight in understanding the pathology of intoxications. The first two days of this course (Thu-Fri) will be followed from your home location. The other three days of the course (Mo-Wed) require your physical attendance at the course location.

This postgraduate course will deal with the physiology and pathophysiology of organ systems. The starting point will be the normal physiology of the organ and its role in the homeostasis of the organism. Different forms of organ dysfunction and its consequences for the organism will be treated, as well as ways of detecting, diagnosing and interpreting organ dysfunction. Students will receive subjects for self-study in small groups culminating in presentations on Friday afternoon. On successful completion of the module, participants should:

– have obtained knowledge and insight in pathophysiological processes underlying intoxications;
– be able to interpret the pathology of intoxications at the level of organ systems;
– be able to apply the obtained insights in case studies and be able to communicate this to fellow-participants.
