Medicine in Action / Chief of Medicine Rounds
MOLMED 540, 1.5 credits
"Medicine in Action" (MolMed540) is a weekly course based on Chief of Medicine Rounds, an ongoing conference for discussion of patients on inpatient and outpatient services at the UW Medical Center. Each week the focus will be on a different disease, as exemplified by a case, including results of diagnosis, pathology and autopsy findings whenever available. The hour-long meeting will be followed by a 30-minute discussion exclusively for students enrolled in this course. The discussion session will emphasize explanation of new terminology and concepts, and offer students the opportunity to explore limitations of current approaches and to provide and critique possibilities for new diagnostics and therapeutics.
