Field of study and Objective
This division is considered as an essential pillar of the CLS department. The scope of study is dealing with information and techniques governing normal and abnormal tissue specimen. In that way the student would be able to trace the pathological feature of any disease and process normal or pathological specimens, malignant or non-malignant.
There are several courses to be covered, starting from normal structure and function of cells to advanced microscopical examination of a pathological specimen:
- cls 211 is covering the normal anatomy and physiology, hence the student is given the basic structure and function of the human body.
- cls 222 ( descriptive histology) to cover the essentials of different body tissue and organs.
- cls 322 (histological technique) where the processing of specimen to be studied under the light microscope is covered. An idea about how to use the profession of microscopy is given.
- cls 324 (essential of electron microscopy) this is a high level course to cover the structure of this tool and how o process a specimen for study with EM .
- CLS321 (General pathology) this is to study changes which takes place in the structure (on microscopical and gross level) due to certain cell injuires.
- cls 421 (Pathophysiology) this course gives an idea about how the development of changes takes place in any organ or system that lead to the disease and correlate this to the manifestation of the disease.
- cls 422 (cytopathology) this is to study the normal and abnormal structure of the exfoliative cells demolished by the body due to a pathological process either malignant or non-malignant conditions.
- cls 323 (Pathophysiology) for non-cls student (rehabitation, radiology, nursing students)
