Students are exposed to the usual routine of hospital based patient care and the record keeping which is required. Students are also preceptered in the work-up of patients. Attendance at all case conferences, team rounds, grand rounds, and didactic-activities are mandatory.

PDMD P421. Clerkship Clinical Neurology. 4.5 Credit Hours.

Students are assigned to and function as members of a neurology consult service. Students follow patients in the hospital from initial consult through resolution. Outpatient experience is highly desirable and will be integrated into this rotation through assignments to outpatient clinic sessions whenever possible. Students are instructed in the performance of a complete neurological examination and its interpretation. Attention is paid to the ordering of special studies to confirm or rule out possible diagnoses (EMG, NCV, evoked potentials, and imaging studies). While students are exposed to a broad spectrum of neurological diseases, the primary emphasis is upon patients with lower extremity manifestations (which may be due to head injury, spinal trauma, CVA, Parkinsonian syndromes and other movement disorders), and on understanding the lower extremity manifestations of each pathology encountered.

Repeatability: This course may be repeated for additional credit.

PDMD P428. Clerkship Infectious Disease. 4.5 Credit Hours.

Students are assigned to and function as members of a medical infectious disease consult service. Students follow patients in the hospital from initial consult through resolution.

Students are also expected to gain in depth knowledge of the pathogens encountered in lower extremity infections and the diagnosis and treatment of such infections. Attendance at all case conferences, team rounds, and other didactic activities are mandatory.

Repeatability: This course may be repeated for additional credit.
