Clinical Medicine III
College of Arts + Science
This course is the third and final part of an intensive study of human disease processes and disorders by organ systems within the broad scope of clinical medicine. Course content will build upon the medical knowledge base obtained in Clinical Medicine I and II and continue with CBL/PBL learning sessions. Clin Med III promotes additional correlation between signs/symptoms of disease, etiology of disease, diagnostic work-up, and the medical rationale for selected management regimes. Utilizing evidence-based medicine, students master skills in clinical medicine, generating differential diagnoses, ordering/interpreting diagnostic studies, development/implementation of appropriate treatment plans, need for specialist referral, including prognosis for ambulatory/hospitalized patients across the lifespan. This diverse and evidence-based learning solidifies foundational lessons and builds a robust knowledge base of clinical content for well-rounded and highly educated PA students moving forward into clinical rotations.
