MD 710. Clinical Medicine

Eight weeks. Third year. Credit, 8 hours. Students spend eight weeks rotating on the general medicine wards of Grady Memorial Hospital, the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Emory University Hospital Midtown and Emory University Hospital.  Each student collects the database, formulates the problem list, draws up the initial plans, and follows each patient in a problem-oriented fashion. To a large extent, the students have primary responsibility for their patients, working under the close supervision of house staff and faculty. Students work as an integral member of the ward team, which consist of an attending faculty member, junior assistant resident, two interns, and two students. Students make ward rounds with the house staff and present patients to the attending faculty. Each student completely works up two to three new patients per week for a total of eighteen patients during the rotation. Student goals are to learn how to collect data, identify and define individual problems, separate multifarious problems into their individual components and clarify their relationships to each other, and organize problems and follow them systematically through to their resolution. Students attend frequent conferences where patients are presented and discussed by members of the teaching staff. Conferences extend throughout the field of internal medicine and its subspecialties. Weekly, throughout the eight weeks, students convene together with the clerkship directors to cover case-based questions and problems to compliment their clinical experience. Final examinations include oral, standardized patient exams and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) subject exam.  Letter grade.

MD 705:  Ambulatory Care Block/Adult Primary Care-Medicine

Twelve weeks. Third year. Credit, 9 hours. Students are assigned to one adult primary care practice for six weeks. The other six weeks are split between a pediatric primary care office (Ambulatory Care Block/Pediatric Primary Care, credit, 3 hours), and outpatient subspecialties in dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, otolaryngology, palliative care, and urology. Students work up one to four patients in each half-day session focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, and acute and chronic disease management in the ambulatory setting. Additionally, students participate in a Quality Improvement (QI) curriculum which includes developing a QI project for one of their primary care practices, and weekly seminars and workshops related to primary care and subspecialty topics. Students are assessed by direct observation by preceptors, reflection papers, QI project proposals, and written and oral examinations. Examinations include pediatric and subspecialty written exams, an adult primary care oral exam, and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Adult Primary Care computerized shelf exam. Letter grade. This clerkship is not open to visiting students.

MD 905.Translations: Senior Medicine Sub-Internship

Four weeks. Fourth year. Credit, 4 hours. Senior students are assigned to ward teams and function as interns under the supervision of a PGY2 or PGY3 resident and the attending physician. They work up patients in rotation with the team™s interns and are responsible for all aspects of the patient™s care. The student is closely supervised during the month by the attending physician and the resident team leader. There are weekly meetings with the course director to discuss interesting cases (with emphasis on presentation, differential diagnosis, and rational test ordering) and a weekly small group session with a faculty member to teach physical examination techniques. An evaluation of the student is done at the end of the month by the supervising faculty member. A directly supervised history and physical exam must be completed by the student and evaluated by a faculty member. Final examination. Letter grade.

Elective Opportunities

Students are exposed to a wide range of medical specialties including the fundamentals of clinical cardiology, symptoms, and the underlying pathophysiology; clinical endocrinology and metabolic disorders including diabetes mellitus, obesity, dyslipedemia and osteoporosis, oncology, digestive diseases, infectious diseases, pulmonary disease, geriatrics, rheumatology, and general medicine. These opportunities include a variety of courses in the form of clerkships, library studies, preceptorships, research, and experience in all of our hospitals. The department annually publishes a pamphlet describing these opportunities in detail. Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
