This course serves as an introduction to the study of blood flow in the cardiovascular system. There is emphasis on modeling and the potential of flow studies for clinical research application. You will become well-versed in heart physiology and flow and attempts to current technology to improve weak or diseased hearts/vessels by giving group presentations. The professor often delegates lectures to the TAs, so be prepared to handle last minute changes in organizations and assignments.
THE tip: Attend lecture, and read the textbook and assigned readings. Learn heart anatomy and blood flow early on… it will help you visualize everything from the start.
Recall: Fluids, calculus, and physiology.
Spend your time… Reviewing lecture notes, heart anatomy, and reading the text. Start early on the final project.
Take Home: Knowledge on the cardiovascular system as it is a great course for pre-meds and those interested in medical device industry.
