CMEDG 1603: Osteopathic Patient Care III

Osteopathic Patient Care III is a blend of case-based curriculum, online modules, large group didactics, small group learning experiences, and standardized patient clinical encounters. In the case sessions, a clinical case is presented, and students must obtain a history and physical examination on the patient. Students work individually to determine problem lists, differentials, and treatment plans. Students write SOAP notes and prescriptions based on their clinical cases, and an in-depth discussion of the case is provided by the faculty the following week. Students will participate in Objective Structured Clinical Experiences (OSCE) to further develop and refine their clinical history and exam skills, presentations, SOAP note writing, and interpersonal skills.  Additional sessions include small group experiences on obstetrical care and participation in a journal club in a variety of speciality areas. Additional lectures providing clinical correlations with a strong focus on the endocrine, neurologic, and dermatologic systems, as well as obstetrics and gynecology will be provided.
