ORIENTATION SCHEDULE:

Orientation for the online course will be done online.  See "Schedule of Credit Courses" booklet in the "Highlights" section for details.

EXAMINATION SCHEDULE:

The final grade in this course is based upon weekly points awarded for quality and quantity of class participation plus a comprehensive final examination.

Comprehensive Final Exam - See "Schedule of Credit Courses" booklet for details.

Notice!  This exam is given "on ground" at a site on campus to be announced at a later date and is required of all students.  You must clear your calendar for the date and time of this exam as specified in the "Schedule of Credit Courses" booklet for the current semester prior to registering for the course.

    Pilot "Online" Lectures for Pathophysiology:  Be aware that these lectures were developed in 2002 for an online Patho course and the content (especially text readings) may not be current with today's lecture material.  However, students have found them useful as supplements to "on ground" lectures and you may feel free to download and print any of these that you think would be helpful.--B.
