MEDI 5205 - Essentials of Clinical Medicine 2 (Part 2)

Essentials of Clinical Medicine II complements the basic and clinical science, problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum at the Medical Partnership Campus. In Phase 2 small-group PBL, students examine patient problems from a biological, behavioral, and epidemiological, as well as common direct clinical perspective: basic science is seen in the context of the totality of the paper problem. In the ECM II curriculum, these same issues and perspectives are seen in the context of real and simulated patients, many of whose current problems fall within the differential diagnosis of the paper problems studied in tutorial. As in tutorial, patient centered clinical experiences under the supervision of a clinical preceptor allow for data gathering, abnormality identification, hypothesis generation, and the development of learning issues. Whereas the tutor is a learning facilitator for his/her group, a clinical-preceptor acts as a facilitator, content expert, and resource person in patient care in clinical practice. These CSP experiences reinforce learning in tutorial and prove the necessary foundation for caring for patients in the future. Through the ECM experience, students develop the interpersonal, interview, physical examination and communication skills that will permit them to solve and resolve patient problems. The ECM II sessions transfer the Phase 2 tutorial process to actual patient-physician interaction. Through Applied Clinical Skills, Clinical Skills Practice, Topics in Patient Centered Care and Principles of Population Health, students will be prepared for the more independent, more complex experiences of Phase 3 and Phase 4: the third year clerkships, senior selectives and electives and sub-internships, and finally, the postgraduate residency training programs and the professional life that continues thereafter.
