Reproduction & Development

REPD 372 (formerly BMED 372)/3.0

In REPD 372 students will obtain a general background on various aspects of human reproduction, ranging from male and female gamete development to pregnancy and birth. The course will serve as a gateway to more advanced courses in human reproduction and development. Students will apply concepts learned through modules to a simulated case study in which a human pregnancy will be followed from the pre-conception stages to parturition and the post-partum period. Evaluations will consist of quizzes, a written essay, a discussion forum and case study group assignments.

Learning Outcomes

REPD 372 students will be able to:

  1. Describe key fundamental concepts in male and female reproductive biology to create a framework that can be applied to more complex topics in human reproduction.
  2. Explain the scientific basis of diseases of pregnancy to determine their implications on health in later life.
  3. Critically assess scientific literature and media reports in human reproductive biology to support arguments in oral and written work.
  4. Integrate course content through active discussion with peers to solve case-based problems related to pregnancy, parturition, and other topics in human reproduction.
