During the clerkship students will participate in many different interactive educational activities:
Core lectures on topics that will be included on the UNC Medicine Exam (Diagnostic and Therapeutic Reasoning, CXR Interpretation, EKGs). All students will participate in these core sessions during the first 4-week rotation, either with a live session (at UNC and some AHEC sites) or by watching the videos on the clerkship website.
Professor Rounds at UNC involve case presentations by students on patients with a disease process based in a particular specialty (Cardiology, Pulmonary, GI, Renal, Rheumatology, Infectious Diseases, and Hematology / Oncology). The purpose of these sessions is to have students learn clinical reasoning using a case-based format and to examine common diseases in detail. Students are assigned to present on a given day. A subspecialty attending will help run the session. More details on Professor Rounds.
Lectures or case-based sessions on other important medicine topics. These will be given at UNC and at all AHEC sites throughout the clerkship.
The Humanities in Medicine Seminar will give you a chance to reflect with your classmates on incidents that spark a visceral reaction in you during the clerkship. More information is available here. An optional reading for inspiration: The Good Doctor
In addition, students will attend other Departmental educational activities including Morning Report, Grand Rounds, M&M Conference, and Resident Noon Conference.
