PA 5356 - Clinical Medicine III (6)


This course is the third in a three-course sequence and is designed to teach students clinical medicine in an integrated and multidisciplinary approach. The course will be primarily lecture based with supplementary case discussions. Lectures will be done in system-based sequences and include instruction in the genetic/familial patterns of disease. The sequences will discuss mechanisms of disease, clinical presentation of disease, approach to diagnosis of disease and use of various agents used in the management of disease as well as health promotion. The associated integration lab will further develop the physician assistant student’s ability to interview patients, develop and support a differential diagnosis, document interview findings, perform physical examinations, and perform oral presentations of interview findings in a timely fashion.
