PAM 560A - Integrated Primary Care I

14 credits
Continuing through fall and spring terms, this course provides students with instruction in patient assesment of the most common clinical problems seen by primary care practitioners. This course includes a review of human anatomy and physiology/pathophysiology and instruction in generation of differential diagnoses; written documentation and oral presentation of patient data; and appropriate referral of patients. Using an organ systems approach, essential information is provided in regards to the diagnosis and management of the most common acute, emergent, and chronic clinical problems seen by primary care providers in their pediatric as well as adult patients. Management methods discussed will include medical, surgical, pharmacologic, and rehabilitative modalities. The students will be able to develop an understanding of major drug classifications, their mechanism of action, the major side effects, and commonly used drugs in each category. Information is presented using lectures, labs, online assignments, and small group activities then enhanced with case studies. Standardized patient encounters and simulation mannequin experinces will be provided in Procedures and Diagnostics, a couse running concurrently.
