MDSC 6310 - Integrated Medicine 1

This is the first of a series of nine primary care medicine courses, each of which will introduce students to a different area of primary care medicine. The courses will help students develop the knowledge required for the practice of medicine. The courses will cover clinical topics using a systems approach. Within each system, a lifespan approach will be used ranging from the pediatric patient through the geriatric patient. Each topic will be examined using the integration of pathophysiology, clinical diagnostic testing, diagnosis, treatment, including nutritional issues and available alternative medicine options. Students will also learn the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for counseling patients concerning clinical problems and educating patients in wellness and disease management and prevention. The integrated medicine course will form the basis for clinical evaluation, diagnosis, management, and appropriate referral when necessary, of various health and wellness processes throughout a person’s life.
