MED4 3001/F - Core Clerkship in Medicine


Cr Hrs: 14 (4-0-46)
The clinical clerkship in medicine is designed to provide the medical student with an opportunity to learn by experience in patient care and by the examples set by the Faculty and house staff. The student is a participating member of the clinical team responsible for patient care that includes residents and the attending physician. A student is expected to: 1) acquire skill and efficiency in history taking and physical examinations, in technical procedures, in the assembly and interpretation of laboratory data, and in patient diagnosis and management; 2) apply to clinical problems the knowledge and facts acquired in the biomedical sciences; and 3) read current medical journals as well as textbooks. Each student is assigned to the University Medical Services at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the Regional Medical Center or Methodist University Hospital for the eight-week rotation. At the mid-point of the clerkship, each student will switch from one hospital assignment to another. Alternatively, students may rotate through Baptist Hospital in Nashville for four weeks of their rotation (MED4-3001/F). This clerkship also is offered in Memphis (MED1-3001/F), Knoxville (MED2-3001/F) and Chattanooga (MED3-3001/ F).
