PAS 201: Foundations of Clinical Medicine

This course explores fundamental concepts of biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and immunology as applied to clinical medicine in a mostly "flipped classroom" format. This course will help to establish a foundation for understanding the pathophysiology of disease and the targets for therapeutic interventions. Disciple-specific topics include: Biochemistry: thermodynamics, enzyme kinetics, vitamins and cofactors, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids and nucleotides, and the integration of metaboloic pathways. Genetics: basic principles of inheritance and risk assessment, illustrated with the use of clinical examples from many areas of medicine including prenatal, pediatric, adult and cancer genetics. Microbiology: Basic bacteriology, virology, mycology and parasitology, including pathogenesis and clinical scenarios associated with infectious diseases. Immunology: concepts and applications of adaptive and innate immunity and the role of the immune system in human disease.

PAS 214: Principles of Clinical Medicine III

This is the third in a four-course sequence presenting organ-system based physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology. Each organ-specific block includes a review of the anatomy and related histology, normal function of that organ system, how the organ system is affected by and responds to disease, and how diseases of that organ system are treated. In PAS 213, the focus is on the structure, function, disease, and corresponding therapeutics of the Renal, Gastroenterology, Endocrine and Reproductive Health systems.

PAS 224: Clinical Therapeutics III

This is the third course of a 4-part series focused on pharmacology and clinical therapeutics with topics related to subjects covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine III course. Topics will include renal, gastrointestinal, endocrine, and men¿s/women¿s health. The pharmacology component will focus on mechanism of action, clinical use, contraindications, adverse reactions, and clinically significant drug interactions of various drug classes. The clinical therapeutics component will focus on medical management of diseases with an emphasis on patient specific drug management.

PAS 280A: Walk With Me: A Patient and Family Centered Exploration of Health & The Health Care System (INDE 290A)

This innovative course for first year medical student places patients, families, and caregivers front and center in the journey to explore health from a person-centered perspective, and better understand the challenges of managing optimal health in a complex health care system. The curriculum is organized around a monthly workshop series, which explores a different health systems science topic each month through lectures from experts from Stanford and the community, and from the perspectives of an individual patient or caregiver, or panel, with time to engage in discussion. Students are also paired with a patient partner with whom they meet monthly outside of class at a mutually convenient time at the school, medical center, or other location key to learning about the patient and caregiver journey, and to further explore together the impact of the monthly topic at the individual level. This course is a partnership of the School of Medicine¿s Stanford Healthcare Innovations and Experiential Learning Directive (SHIELD) program, the Stanford Health Care Patient & Family Partner Program, and the Stanford Division of Primary Care and Population Health.

PAS 291: PAs in Health Care I: Introduction to the Profession

This course provides an overview of the PA profession. The first portion of the course covers the history of the PA profession, the role of the PA within the health care team, and an overview of the laws, regulations and committees that provide oversight to the profession. The second portion of the course focuses on health disparities, social determinants of health and undeserved communities, and the role of the PA in the care of these populations. It includes development of the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed in order to practice culturally competent and sensitive health care.
