Module Goal

The Gastrointestinal module aims to give the students both a broad overview of gastrointestinal diseases, infections, diagnostic studies and therapeutic options as well as detailed information regarding select disorders. There are multiple organs involved in this system; some diseases will involve multiple organs and others unique to a particular organ. Along with the organs of the actual GI tract, this module includes the liver, exocrine pancreas and the salivary glands. We use this module to present special topics of poisoning and the use of natural products.
