PAS 6010 - Diagnostic Medicine I

Credits, 1 sem. hr.
This is the first of a multi-semester lecture course covering medical interviewing, physical diagnosis, and medical terminology, radiology, imaging, clinical laboratory tests, electrocardiography (ECG), and other diagnostic methods. This initial semester emphasizes radiographic anatomy, the practical application of medical history-taking, and the recording and presentation of clinical information. The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the art of medical communication. This encompasses the skills of medical interviewing and other forms of communication (including an Introduction to the Electronic Medical Record) with patients, their families, and their caregivers. Students will learn the components of a complete medical history. In addition, they will learn interviewing skills that will allow them to efficiently elicit a patient history in an accurate and empathetic manner. Students will be exposed to and begin to develop skills in oral case presentations. Students will also learn how to properly document medical interviews and other patient encounters.
