"U.C.L.A. Rheumatology Pathophysiology Course Syllabus: 1997"
Dr. David T. Y. Yu asked me to be the lead speaker for the UCLA second year medical student's pathophysiology class in 1997. The syllabus for that year was posted on my web site, and I've left it here ever since. It demonstrates some of the multimedia capabilities at that time.
"U.C.L.A. Rheumatology Pathophysiology Course "Syllabus": 2005"
Since then, each year I've been trying to improve on the presentation. The "syllabus" is now given to the students as an interactive Flash E-book on a CDROM (see the first Flash E-book title immediately below). The presentation above contains the content which can be viewed without the flash player. All the images are included and can be copied, and most of the images have larger versions as well. Each section also has the appropriate flash movies available.
Flash E-books
E-Topics: Pathophysiology

"Rheumatology Overview: Images and Animation in Arthritis and Rheumatism"
The lead lecture for the ucla second year medical school pathophysiology of disease course, covering numerous topics in Rheumatology.

"New Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis"
A review of the pertinent immunology and then a description of the new treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis-under construction. Intended for M.D.'s, medical students, or other interested parties.
