This course provides an introduction to the common conditions that affect individuals from the start of adulthood to middle age. This course will investigate the epidemiology, aetiology and pathophysiology of common and important cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, renal, mental health, and cancer conditions found in clinical adult populations up to middle age.
