Module 2A – Presenting Problems in Diseases of the Urogenital System- Part 1
This module deals with important complaints that a patient may present with in case he is suffering from a disease of the urogenital system.
Module 2B Presenting Problems in Diseases of the Urogenital System- Part 2
This module is a continuation of the previous module and deals with the remaining complaints that a patient may present with in case he is suffering from a disease of the urogenital system.
Module 3 – Tumours of the Urogenital System
This module elaborates upon the cancers and tumours that attack the kidneys and the rest of the urogenital system. The major and the most commonly encountered tumours and cancers in the urogenital system have been covered in the module.
Module 4 – Kidneys in Systemic Disorders
This module talks about the impact of those systemic disorders which affect the kidneys significantly. Each systemic illness has been dealt with in depth giving an emphasis upon the renal manifestations of the disease.
Module 5 – Renal Vascular Diseases
This module deals with the vascular diseases of the kidneys. The disorders that affect the renal vasculature have been explained thoroughly with a focus on their effects on the kidneys and functioning of the urogenital system.
Module 6 – Glomerular Diseases
This module goes into the functional unit of the kidney that is the nephron and talks about the diseases which affect the glomerulus. The module goes on to explain both acquired and inherited diseases of the glomerulus in depth.
Module 7 – Tubulointerstitial Diseases
This module deals with the diseases of the tubulointerstitium which are often the most common conditions leading to acute and chronic renal failure. Often these are immune mediated and they have been thoroughly explained in the module.
Module 8 – Diseases of Ureters, the Collecting System & the Lower Genitourinary Tract
This module elaborates upon those diseases which particularly affect the collecting system and the ureters. The pathology clinical manifestations and the management of each one of them has been thoroughly covered.
Module 9 – Diseases of the Prostate Gland
Prostate is one of the important glands in the male urogenital system. This module talks about the diseases which attack this gland and indirectly affect the functioning of the urogenital system.
Module 10 – Homeopathic Therapeutics in Urogenital Diseases
This module gives the indications of homeopathic remedies which can be used in different diseases and disorders of the urogenital system. Different complaints that have been covered in different modules have been taken up one by one and remedies for each one of them have been explained.
- Module 1 – Fundamentals of the Urogenital System
This course on Diseases of the Urogenital System covers almost all infections, diseases and disorders of the kidneys and other parts of the urogenital system like the prostate, bladder etc. Even though the subject is vast and complex, a detailed yet easily comprehensible content on each disease has been prepared with the aim to make an undergraduate learner grasp each and every concept thoroughly and deeply.
a. Kidney diseases, though common, are silent mostly until the kidneys have been damaged to the extent that they are only minimally functional. In such situations it is important for the future medical practitioners to be thorough
with each and every sign and symptom which indicates some pathology in the kidneys or the urogenital system.
b. Kidneys are sturdy organs and hence their pathology is usually seen secondary to diseases of the other systems and organs like nephropathy which occurs after persistent hypertension or diabetes. It is important to understand diseases of the urogenital system so that the learner may be able to grasp the renal or urogenital complications of diseases of other systems in the body.
Beneficiaries: UG/PG Students
A. The course deals with the most important urogenital diseases covered in a way that the learner will be able to relate them with normal physiology and understand the deviation from normal which led to the development of the given disease.
B. Each module has been incorporated with the latest advancements and researches in the field of urogenital diseases to allow the learner to upgrade the conceptual knowledge as well as update himself/herself with the latest facts and figures.
