Learning Outcomes of UE

At the end of this course, the student will be able to understand the physiology of cells in general and of excitable cells in particular. He will know the principles of homeostasie and body fluid regulation.
He will have notion about tissues organization and cellular signalling. He will understand how the circulatory and the respiratory systems are working, the main pathologies related to these systems and the mechanisms of action of drugs. 
At the end of this course, the student will be able to understand the working of the different organs of the body (kidney, digestive tract, brain and autonomic nervous system, endocrine glands).   For each tissue/organ, the mode of action of different drugs will be studied At the end of the course, the student will have basic knowledges allowing the understanding of diseases and treatments related to the circulatory and respiratory systems.
