As a learner in Pathophysiology, it’s important to take the information you are absorbing from your coursework and connect it to real life. Throughout the semester you will be invited to make connections by locating, reviewing, and summarizing current and relevant journal articles.
Use the following link to learn how to find and evaluate an online source: (Links to an external site.)
Locate a current (medical or scientific) news or journal article based on ONE of the following topics:
A disorder or disease that is related to one of the cell’s organelles (i.e., nucleus, cytoplasm, ribosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, Golgi complex, lysosomes, peroxisomes, mitochondria, cytoskeleton, caveolae, vaults or plasma membrane).
A disorder or disease affecting cell membrane transport (i.e., distribution of body fluids and electrolytes, alterations in potassium & other electrolytes)
A disorder or disease affecting one of the major tissue types (i.e., epithelial, connective, nervous or muscular).
Provide a write-up summarizing the article. Within your document, include how the information connects to Pathophysiology, and why it is relevant.
Aim to include 150 – 200 words in the summary.
Remember to cite your source(s) in APA Format!
