4 Summary of Week 2

Having reached the end of the second week of the course you should now be able to identify a number of tissue types, including skin, lung, gut, liver, pancreas and lymph node.

In the process you have learned about tissue organisation, and should be able to recognise some of the cell types found within the organs mentioned above.

Finally, from a practical perspective, you have learned how to scan across a slide systematically, and you should now be starting to look for abnormalities in tissue structure based on your understanding of what healthy tissue looks like.

Next week you will be examining some more tissues and relating their structure to their functions.

Please note that there is no quiz this week.
