College of Arts + Science
The student will build upon the knowledge and foundational skills and techniques acquired in Patient Assessment Exploration I to complete a thorough physical examination and further develop their skills at presenting patient information verbally. The art of patient education and counseling will be developed as introduced in Healthcare Issues I. This semester will include gastroenterology, cardiology, and genitourinary/ renal systems. This course will continue to focus on hands on practice and training within the lab setting with simulated, cadaveric, real patient models, small groups and clinical site visits. This course will build upon the foundations of ECG interpretation and radiologic review from PAE I. While learning the body systems, students will have the opportunity to learn and practice related procedures and diagnostic evaluations.
