MED 7502: Medicine Clerkship Part A

4 CreditsOnline Available

Course created specifically to accommodate clinical setting restrictions due to COVID-19 from spring 2020 to spring 2021. Part A of this course covers the virtual coursework while Part B covers the clinical component. Both parts A and B must be completed for the clerkship requirement to be considered fulfilled. Catalog Description: The MED 7500 (Medicine Externship I, or \"Med I\") is the core clinical clerkship that provides the critical foundations for not only adult inpatient medicine but also for the care of the acutely ill patient. Students will be part of inpatient care teams that will include interns, residents, and faculty. Students will learn through case discussions and presentations, didactics, independent study, and in the daily care of their patients. Students are expected to care for their patients as their primary point of contact, to begin to assume the responsibility for caring for, and coordinating care for, their patients. In addition, students on MED 7500 are expected to develop the basic skills of patient care in an academic environment. These skills include working across disciplines and professions on a health care team, effectively documenting and relaying patient care information between other care providers, and learning how to gather information to create a well-formulated assessment and plan. The skills learned on MED 7500 provide the foundation for patient care that students will use across disciplines for the remainder of medical school, into residency, and beyond.
