SURG 100A: Virtual and Real: Clinical Anatomy and Sports Injuries of the Limbs and Torso

This undergraduate course is designed to teach human anatomy through radiographs, CT scans, MRIs and cadaver material with the emphasis on the understanding of common sports injuries of the torso and limbs. To aid students in developing their image interpretive skills, additional resources such as virtual interactive scans, the 3D anatomy table, and interactive digital applications will be utilized. This course divides the anatomy of the body into five areas; each area will be presented in a two-week block. In the first week of each block, students will develop an understanding of human anatomy through the identification of relevant structures on prosecutions (cadaver material), and in the second week, students will utilize this knowledge in the interpretation of radiographs, CT scans and MRIs. The anatomy will be taught in relation to common sports injuries; and, student projects will focus on the understanding of the anatomy and treatment of these conditions and injuries. The class is limited to 20 students.

The student gains ¿hands-on¿ experience with the following procedures: arterial lines, central lines, pulmonary artery lines (Swan-Ganz catheters), and chest tubes, as well as other procedures appropriate to the student¿s technical capabilities. Daily attending rounds help the student to master the following topics: mechanical ventilators, vasoactive drugs (pressors and inotropes), fluid resuscitation, shock, oxygen transport, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, ARDS, multiple organ failure, enteral and parenteral nutrition (TPN), and weaning from the ventilator. The student also participates in the resuscitation and operative management of trauma patients.

SURG 340B: Critical Care Clerkship

Open to visitors. This clerkship provides experience managing adult patients in a critical care unit. Students learn how to optimize care for the acutely ill patient and the multidisciplinary approach to complex patients. Teaching emphasizes the review of basic organ physiology, the ability to determine the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in critical illness, and the formulation of a physiologic based treatment plan. Students gain experience with the implementation of monitoring and therapeutic devices used in the intensive care units and begin to become adept at the evaluation, stabilization and management of the most critically ill patients expected to be encountered in today's acute care hospitals. Ward rounds, bedside evaluation and treatment, and individual interactions with attending, fellows and residents are part of the educational process. Students must attend mandatory simulator courses in order to receive passing grade for this clerkship. Students wishing to do this clerkship must get approval from Bernadette Carvalho first before registering. Students must register for Anes 340B for this clerkship.
