Class Synopsis/Outline:

Covering the physiological and medical matters (that I can find) pertinent and specific to some of the major races in the galaxy.
This is something I've slowly researched and worked on in the background, on and off, over the years, just for personal RP reference use but never pulled everything together and developed it fully to a "course" level.
I will avoid try to steer clear of neurological matters as I know there is a neurology class in development
There will be a few race-specific psychological footnotes too that are relevent to care givers - I don't mean real psyche stuff, but their attitudes to certain matters pertinent to medical staff e.g. the Klingons attitude towards illness/disability, an Andorian's vulnerability due to antenna damage.

Races I plan to cover:
-Vulcan - Romulan
-Trill ( IF the Trill Medical class proposed back in Jan 2016 comes to fruition I will of course remove this section to my class and defer to that. Most of the info I plan to use for this section I had already pulled together so it would be no significant loss of future effort on my part to do so.)
-Any other races I can find sufficient medical data on to justify inclusion

Update: Course is progressing well, I think a title change is required as 101 suggests a level of covering all the basics, where this course will be looking at specific races.
I plan to look at 2 physiologies for this course: Trill & Andorian, as it will be too long to cover more.
Thus it would make more sense to entitle the course as "Xenophysiology 1 : Trill & Andorian"
Subsequent Races can be included in further course e.g. "Xenophysiology 2: Vulcan & Romulan"
I plan to work on Klingon, Vulcan/Romulan, plus others providing sufficient medical material is available, as additional courses once I have my current in progress projects completed.
