Growth and Development II
This block links up to block Growth and Development in year 1 (block 1.1). Once more the stages of life form a connecting thread throughout the block. In the first year the normal procedure of growth and development has already received much attention. In this block we build upon this knowledge and we would also like to get you acquainted with abnormal growth and development. This is done problem based by using cases, in which basic (patho-) physiological processes, diagnostics and treatment are covered. Lectures provide additional knowledge partly by means of patient demonstrations. The first four weeks concern pregnancy, delivery and birth. In the fifth week child development is covered together with some puberty related themes. In week 6 and 7 the central theme is formed by abnormal growth of tissues and treatment for oncological disorders. We close of in the last week of the block with functional changes that occur in ageing. Within the scope of science a “congress day” is organised that includes a forum discussion, posters and presentations of scientific data made for and by you.
