College of Optometry 249 Note: Listed at the end of each entry are lecture hours, laboratory hours, and semester hours. Medical Sciences The following courses listed are taught by the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine faculty members. OPTC 1134—Gross Anatomy: Head and Neck This course presents the study of the general anatomical and functional features of the major systems of the human body. These include the skeletal system, muscular system, peripheral nervous system, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, digestive system, and urogenital system. In addition, the latter part of the course includes a detailed study of the anatomical and functional features of the head and neck region. This course is intended to prepare students in the knowledge, skills, and attributes needed of an entry-to-practice Doctor of Optometry. While this course should also help students prepare for licensing examinations, such as those administered by the NBEO, nothing in this course, including the lectures and discussions, coursework, study guides, teaching notes, electronically posted information, or other materials, should be believed or understood to utilize actual confidential examination items from licensing examinations. For example, throughout this course, the instructors may indicate points of emphasis for NBEO study and preparatory work. This instructional approach does not reflect knowledge of actual NBEO examination items, but represents a suggested area of focus based entirely upon the NBEO content outline/matrix. All materials in this course have been prepared in good faith to comply with the highest ethical standards of the profession. (54-36-4) OPT 1323—Microbiology The microbiology course for optometry includes both the basic aspects of human immunology and the most important microbial pathogens involved in diseases of the eye. The basic biology of microorganisms is covered, followed by a general medical approach to each disease. (36-0-2) OPTC 2023—General Neuroanatomy This course will examine the structural, functional, and developmental features of the human nervous system with reference to different disease states. (36-18-3) OPTC 2144—General Physiology The purpose of this course is to provide the student with an understanding of various factors and processes responsible for the development, progression, and procreation of life. The material of the course will be presented in accordance with an organ systems approach with particular emphasis on applications of the discussed principles to the specific clinical examples and disorders that affect eyes and vision. The areas covered will include cellular physiology, skeletal and smooth muscle, the cardiovascular system, the nervous and sensory systems, the renal system, the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, and the endocrine system. (72-0-4) OPT 3033—General Pathology The course consists of a study of fundamental concepts of general and systemic pathology (consideration of particular organ systems such as cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, etc.), supplemented by pathological cases in the clinical setting on selected diseases. Emphasis in this course will be given on ocular manifestations of systemic diseases whenever applicable. (54-0-3) OPTC 3244—General Pharmacology I This course will provide the student with a thorough understanding of the classes of drugs commonly used in clinical practice. Emphasis will be on the mechanism of action, clinical indications, side effects, important drug interactions, and the basic pharmacokinetics of each drug class. (72-0-4) OPTC 4022—General Pharmacology II This course will provide the students with a thorough understanding of the classes of drugs commonly used in clinical settings. Emphasis will be on the mechanism of action, clinical indications, side effects, important drug interactions, and the basic pharmacokinetics of each drug class. (27-0-1.5) Optometric Basic Sciences OPT 1443—Theoretical Optics I The course covers principles of geometric optics, examples, and optometric applications. The major topics are the propagation of light, laws of reflection and refraction, prisms, refraction at curved surfaces, object-image relationships in thin lenses and cylindrical lenses, reflection at plane, and curved surfaces. The emphasis is to apply required laws, principles, relationships, and formulas to solve problems. (54-0-3) OPTL 1443—Theoretical Optics I Lab The purpose of this course is to apply and demonstrate concepts presented in Theoretical Optics I Lecture (OPT 1443). This includes learning how to set up an experiment in the area of geometrical optics, collect and plot data, and use that data in calculations to identify unknown variables.
