This course will build upon the skills learned in Developing Clinical Reasoning Skills. There will be greater complexity in case presentations, using accumulated basic and clinical science knowledge with particular emphasis on material from Physical Examination and Diagnosis; Imaging Interpretation-Appendicular Focus; Adjusting Procedures II; and Adjusting Procedures III. In addition to recognizing common presentations, formulating differential diagnoses and a final diagnosis, the students will begin to develop appropriate adjustive and/or other therapeutic intervention strategies. The use of standardized patients in both teaching and assessment enhances the learning process.
