During the clerkship students will participate in many different interactive sessions:
Core lectures on topics that will be included on the UNC Medicine Exam. 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. More information on these topics can be found here:
|Diagnostic and Therapeutic Reasoning||CXR Interpretation||EKGs|
Professor Rounds at UNC involve case presentations by students on patients with a disease process based in a particular specialty (Cardiovascular, Respiratory, 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. For details, please see here.
