- Apply knowledge of cellular, molecular, genetic, evolutionary, and physiological mechanisms to describe the cause and consequence of human disease states.
- Integrate knowledge to predict the outcome of lifestyle choices, environmental factors, and medical interventions on human health across the lifespan.
- Demonstrate the ability to acquire an in-depth and advanced understanding of specific biological processes, for example, the neurobiology of brain disorders, cardiovascular physiology, or embryological development, as they apply to the human condition.
- Critically evaluate the scientific merits of widely disseminated information from the public domain as it applies to human health.
- Address scientific questions using quantitative approaches and critical reasoning, including developing hypotheses, analyzing data, and interpreting results.
