GC 507 Human Embryology and Teratology

4 credits
This course examines the normal, variant and abnormal embryologic development of the human fetus. Practical applications such as the development of malformations and deformations in response to environmental and genetic factors will be illustrated. Specific attention will be paid to teratogens frequently encountered in clinical practice. The methods of researching a potential teratogenic agent and the potential clinical outcomes after exposure will be included. Students will prepare a paper reviewing a selected teratogenic agent in which they will demonstrate understanding of basic pertinent embryologic events and the analysis of risks for outcome after exposure to the agent.
