EMAP 505 - Occupa & Enivor Toxic
 This course addresses the manner in which human exposures to chemicals in the workplace and the environment result in adverse health outcomes. The course uses both an organ systems approach and an exposure/outcome approach and addresses absorption, toxicokinetics, common target organs, the pathophysiology of common occupational/environmental diseases, criteria and methods of diagnosis, use of epidemiologic information, prevention, and research questions related to particular disease entities. As a graduate-level course, it will complement the background text with current research publications to be discussed in student and small group team presentations of current topics in toxicology. At the end of the course, students will be able to: 1. Describe the major occupational and environmental diseases, 2. Analyze exposure via absorption pathways for major groups of toxicants, 3. Evaluate the relationship between the absorbed toxicant dose and the development of adverse health outcome(s), 4. Design appropriate prevention strategies, and 5. Analyze gaps in knowledge and describe research needs based on current peer reviewed journal articles.
