MED 201 - INTRODUCTION TO CLINICAL MEDICINE

In conjunction with the Science and Practice of Medicine course, students are trained in history taking and physical diagnosis. Groups of 2 students are assigned to an instructor (faculty or resident) and taken on hospital rounds. They are taught proper technique for physical examination and are assigned specific patients for history taking and/or physical exams. These are written up (with problem list and differential diagnosis) and critiqued by the preceptor. The sophomore course builds on a history taking and physical examination skills initially taught in the first year.
