Clinical Medicine II
College of Arts + Science
Clinical Medicine II constitutes the second semester of a three-part didactic series. Course content will build upon the strong knowledge base obtained in Clinical Medicine I and continue with CBL/PBL, and evidence-based learning sessions. Clin Med II promotes additional correlation between signs/symptoms of disease, etiology of disease, diagnostic work-up, and medical rationale for selected management regimes. The complete Clin-Med series will work congruently with the PAE (Physical Assessment Exploration) course where the knowledge of clinical conditions learned; becomes applied to the history and physical examination. Students will hone skills in generating differential diagnoses, ordering and interpreting diagnostic studies, development/implementation of appropriate treatment plans, including prognosis for both ambulatory and hospitalized patients across the lifespan. This diverse and evidence-based learning solidifies foundational lessons and builds a robust knowledge base of course content.
