-is able to write summaries of the seminars
Period: November 2017 - February 2018

E-lectures are mainly given by professor Emma Jakoi of Duke University.
Support (content and technical) by:
Prof.  H.V.M van Rijen,

Course content
In this course the physiology and pathophsyiology of organs (heart, vasculature and kidney) are taught including their relations and interactions.
Students have to watch online lectures and are encouraged to check their level of understanding in a formative mini-quiz, which is organized in small e-modules provided in Blackboard. After every theme (Cardiovascular and Renal system) the student has to pass the formative test. Students are welcome to participate in practical skills training concerning the ECG.
Summative assessments are two midterm exams and one final test. These tests are similar to the exams of the bachelor course ‘Orgaansystemen’.
Teachers of this particular course are available to answer questions.
