SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
COMPARATIVE MEDICINE

Detailed course offerings (Time Schedule) are available for

C MED 499 Undergraduate Laboratory Research (1-6, max. 12) Iritani, Ladiges, Price, Ruddell
Specific problems in comparative medicine. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: AWSpS.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 499 (student access only)

C MED 512 Introduction to the Anatomical Analysis of Animal Disease (2, max. 10) P. TREUTING
Use of animals in experimental study of disease; techniques of animal necropsy, characterization, interpretation of gross and microscopic lesions, correlation of lesions with altered physiological processes, differentiation between naturally occurring and experimentally induced lesions. Prerequisite: PATH 444, PATH 445, or equivalent, and permission of instructor. Enrollment limited: two students per quarter. Offered: AWSpS.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 512 (student access only)

C MED 516 Research Literature Review Seminar (1, max. 12) B. IRITANI
Alternates between research seminars and literature review presentation. Research seminar topics typically relate to the utilization of basic and translational animal models. Literature review seminar involves critical evaluation of recent articles on laboratory animal medicine and other scientific or medical topics. Emphasis is on literature dealing with spontaneous diseases of laboratory animals, biology and husbandry, zoonotic diseases, and animal models of human disease. Also covers experimental design, use of animals in research, and methods of reviewing manuscripts. Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: AWSpS.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 516 (student access only)

C MED 518 Clinical and Comparative Seminar (1, max. 12) Price, Treuting
Alternates between clinical veterinary and comparative pathology discussions. Clinical discussions include case reports of spontaneous and induced diseases, and topics including animal models of human disease, preventative medicine, and zoonotic diseases. Comparative pathology discussions cover gross and histopathology of naturally occurring and experimentally induced lesions of primates, laboratory and domestic animals, fish, wildlife, and birds. Participants discuss the lesions and the basic pathogenetic mechanisms that underlie them. Prerequisite: PATH 500, or equivalent, and permission of instructor. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: AWSpS.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 518 (student access only)

C MED 520 Biology of Laboratory Animals (1) T. BRABB, B. IRITANI, P. TREUTING
Fundamentals of morphological, functional, and applied aspects of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and immunology of commonly used laboratory animal species. Discusses similarities and differences within and between species, including humans. Other topics include husbandry, genetics, behavior, and nutrition. Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Offered: A.

C MED 521 Biology of Laboratory Animals (1) Brabb, Iritani, Treuting
Fundamentals of the morphological, functional, and applied aspects of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and immunology of the commonly used laboratory animal species. Similarities and differences within, and between, species, including man. Husbandry, genetics, behavior, and nutrition. Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Offered: W.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 521 (student access only)

MyPlan Course Details: C MED 531 (student access only)

C MED 540 Animal Models (1) T. BRABB, B. IRITANI, P. TREUTING
Naturally occurring and experimentally induced analogs of human diseases in animals with emphasis on diseases lacking animal models, and approaches to identifying new models. Discusses animal models of categorical disease (e.g., cancer, atherosclerosis, gerontology). Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Offered: Sp.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 540 (student access only)

C MED 590 Selected Topics in Animal Medicine (1-5, max. 10) T. BRABB, L. COLBY, C. FREVERT, B. IRITANI, P. TREUTING
Radiation biology, genetics, anesthesiology and experimental surgery, preventive medicine, and ethical aspects of use of animals in biomedical teaching and research. Specific topics vary from year to year, depending on expertise of the annual visiting professor. Prerequisite: permission of instructor. Offered: AWSpS.
MyPlan Course Details: C MED 590 (student access only)

C MED 592 Comparative Pathology for the Scientist (3) C. FREVERT
Introduces the interpretation of pathological changes in animals used for biomedical research, with a focus on the mouse. Covers study design and interpretation, techniques to measure pathological changes in major organ systems, plus other topical material related to preclinical drug studies and translational research.
