Clinical Medicine I
College of Arts + Science
Clinical Medicine I constitute the first semester of a three-part didactic series. The complete Clin-Med series will work congruently with the PAE (Physical Assessment Exploration) course. Students will learn of human disease processes and disorders by organ systems within the broad scope of clinical medicine. This semester will focus on fundamental medical knowledge, including elements of the history, diagnostic, therapeutic, procedural components of medicine and the disease process. Students will explore the epidemiology, etiology, management, follow up of human disease, injury, and disorders across the lifespan. Students will master the generation of differential diagnoses, ordering and interpreting diagnostic studies, development and implementation of appropriate treatment plans, including prognosis for both ambulatory and hospitalized patients across the lifespan.
