Medical Physics is designed as an advanced lab science course to prepare college-bound students for a career in medicine. The student leaves the course with a strong background in cardiology, anatomy, histology, biochemistry, physiology, and experimental design and presentation. The student diagnoses, treats, and understands disease processes using case studies of real patients throughout the entire year. When possible, a field trip to the UNM medical school cadaver lab culminates a lab unit on the internal organs. Reading, writing, speaking, and research strategies are integrated throughout the course.
