BMHS 5401 - Hematopoietic System (3 Credit Hours)

This course is a comprehensive study of the hematopoietic system, including the development, structure and function of the hematopoietic system cells and tissues, and the associated abnormalities. Students will learn about the roles of bone marrow, thymus, spleen and liver in the production and function of blood cells, as well as the clotting system. The use of blood transfusions, tissue transplantation and laboratory methods for measuring hematopoietic system functions is presented. These topics are followed by discussion of clinically important disorders of blood cells, hemostasis, and hematopoietic organs, including deficiencies and neoplasias, and the pharmacologic management of conditions pertaining to this system. In order to enhance understanding of the system and the clinical implications of abnormalities for dental patients, students will apply didactic information in case-based seminars that emphasize oral and maxillofacial manifestations. The Bioclinical seminar (BMBS 5413) will be also be used for analysis of cases relevant to the topics covered in BMHS 5401.
