INTER 106 - Foundations of Clinical Medicine II


5.00 credit hour

The Foundations of Clinical Medicine course is a longitudinal two-year course that runs simultaneously with Module I and Module II during the MSI and MSII years. This course emphasizes a humanistic approach to medical care and is designed to equip students with the basic clinical skills required of any excellent physician, regardless of their specialty. During the Foundations course, students will focus on important aspects of the doctor-patient relationship including communication skills, physical examination, and physical diagnosis. Other important features relevant to the care of patients are also underscored including professionalism, medical ethics, evidence-based medicine, and health care in society. Students are introduced to aspects of the relationship of physicians to patients. Topics include professionalism, humanism/empathy, stress management, family systems and disease prevention, problems of aging, cultural diversity, growth development, and epidemiology. Physician-patient communication is taught in small groups and in simulated doctor-patient medical history interviews and examinations.
