Course number: MED 58909

Course Title: Practice of Medicine 3 (POM3)

Semester: Fall, 5th Year / 4 Credits

Course Director: TBD

Course Description: This is the third part of Practice of Medicine 3 (POM 3), an 18-month course that is integrated with the organ systems-based courses in Years 4 and 5. In POM 3, students will formally learn to perform the skills of patient interviewing, complete medical history taking, and advanced physical diagnosis, as well as issues regarding patient counseling and health promotion, advanced communication skills such as delivering bad news, discussing advanced directives, clinical reasoning, ethical reasoning, behavioral medicine, and recording and managing health information (such as oral and written presentations). These skills will be taught in a manner that is integrated with the organ-systems curriculum so that students can simultaneously learn about the pathophysiology of disease and develop appropriate clinical skills so that they can place diseases into a clinical context. In Years 4 and 5, students will have hands-on, supervised clinical experience with patients through a continuation of their LCE (longitudinal clinical experience) at their assigned ambulatory site as well as additional inpatient and ambulatory care experiences.
