MEDI 5591 - Essentials of Clinical Medicine 1-Physical Diagnosis



The Essentials of Clinical Medicine (ECM) course is a four-semester program designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors to perform successfully in the Phase 3 clerkships. ECM is organized into three “courses” (Physical Diagnosis, Problem-based Learning and Foundations of Clinical Practice) with five components (The Art of Doctoring, Population and Public Health, Evidence-based Practice, Problem-based Learning, and Physical Diagnosis), which build sequentially on one another, and are interwoven wherever possible with the core foundational science modules. ECM is designed to ensure a continuity of training for the student across the Phase 1 and 2 years in the areas of professionalism, clinical skills development, cultural competency, public health, evidence-based practice, clinical content, interdisciplinary collaborative teaching, and self-evaluation of performance.
