MCLIN 235 - DISEASE AND THERAPY OF THE PULMONARY SYSTEM

[54 Hours]
Disease and Therapy of the Pulmonary System is a required course for all second year medical students. The course integrates the pathology, microbiology, and pharmacology relevant to major pulmonary diseases. In addition to these basic science underpinnings, clinical aspects of pulmonary 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, I 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 pulmonary disease and treatment. The Disease and Therapy of the Pulmonary 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.
