Course number: MED 59009

Course Title: Practice of Medicine 3 (POM3)

Semester: Spring, 5th Year / 3 Credits

Course Director:

Course Description: This is the fourth 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.

 

Course number: MED 51009

Course Title: Selectives in Population Health Research

Semester: Spring, 5th Year / 1 Credit

Course Director: TBD

Course Description: This is Part 2 of a two-year course. The course divided into two tracks: Integration of Research and Practice (“Track 1”) and Independent Research (“Track 2”). In both tracks, the core content will teach students to identify relevant research problems, define strong research questions, develop testable hypotheses, conduct sound literature reviews, evaluate the quality of published research articles, and make causal inferences from either published data or newly collected data. Ethical issues in conducting population health research will be discussed. Student groups will be given 3-4 population health problems and asked to address these problems using the published literature. 

 

Course number: MED 54009

Course Title: Evidence-Based Medicine

Semester: Spring, 5th Year / 1 Credit

Course Director: TBD

Course Description: This course is part two of the seventh Population Health course and is a continuation of MED 43709/43809. The course provides students with the opportunity to practice integrating population health knowledge and skills with knowledge and skills from the clinical and basic science curriculum in order to practice evidence-based medicine. Students will be provided training in methods necessary for examining the medical literature and making decisions in accordance with individual patient preferences.
