MCLIN 236 - DISEASE AND THERAPY OF THE RENAL SYSTEM

[60 Hours]
Disease and Therapy of the Renal System is a required course for all second year medical students. The course integrates the pathology, microbiology, and pharmacology relevant to major renal and urologic diseases. In addition to these basic science underpinnings, clinical aspects of renal diseases are emphasized. These include screening and prevention, history taking, physical examination, diagnostic testing, clinical reasoning, and management (acute and chronic). The course employs a variety of teaching modalities. These include lectures, small group laboratory sessions, computer based cases, and team based learning (TBL) sessions. Small group discussions in the concurrent Clinical Skills Integration course will include content relevant to renal disease and treatment. The Disease and Therapy of the Renal System course assesses students based on quiz grades, TBL grades, performance in the skills laboratory, professionalism, and a final exam provided by the National Board of Medical Examiners.
