Clinical Medicine I is the first course in a three-course series designed to present an integrated and systems-based approach to medical care across the lifespan. This course series provides an intensive review of human diseases and clinical conditions, including their etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, differential diagnosis, comprehensive management, and prognosis. In-depth instruction throughout the series also covers various types of care, including preventive, emergent, acute, chronic, rehabilitative, palliative, and end-of-life.
Through integration with concurrent courses, students develop the clinical reasoning and problem-solving skills required to work through patient cases effectively. This specific course includes the hematologic system; infectious diseases; dermatologic system; eyes, ears, nose, and throat (EENT); and pulmonary system.
