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. Discipline topics include: Biochemistry: thermodynamics, enzyme kinetics, vitamins and cofactors, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids and nucleotides, and the integration of metabolic 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. Enrollment is limited to MSPA students.
Terms: Aut | Units: 4

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, gastroenterological, endocrine, and reproductive systems.
Terms: Aut | Units: 12
Instructors: Nelson, C. (PI)

PAS 224: Clinical Therapeutics III

This course will provide a foundation for learning pharmacology and clinical therapeutics/disease state management for renal, endocrine, GI, and reproductive systems as covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine III course. Disease state topics will include renal function and fluid/electrolytes, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, chronic kidney disease, thyroid disorders, contraception, viral hepatitis, GERD/PUD, constipation/diarrhea, clostridium difficile colitis, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, men¿s health, and menopause.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3
Instructors: Ip, E. (PI)

PAS 256: Introduction to Qualitative Research II

This course will provide the physician assistant students with an introduction to qualitative research methods, specifically data analysis, with significant time focused on thematic analysis coding. This course focuses on analysis of students' individual qualitative data sets. Prerequisites: successful completion of PAS 255. Additionally, students should not enroll in this course unless they will have IRB approval and qualitative data available for analysis prior to the start of the course.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2
Instructors: Nasr, A. (PI)

PAS 291: PAs in Health Care I

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.
Terms: Aut | Units: 1

PAS 292: PAs in Health Care II

The PAHC II course provides an opportunity to learn advanced clinical skills and provides an introduction to clerkships. Students will be provided an overview on several clerkships. They will learn telemedicine skills, suturing, and advanced cardiac life support. In addition, lectures on special considerations for caring for pediatric and geriatric patients as well as caring for patients at end-of-life will be provided.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2

PAS 294: PAs in Healthcare IV

The final course in the PAs in Health Care series will provide students with the skills necessary for transition from PA student to practicing PA and will continue to expand on leadership skills. One portion of the course will focus on preparation from the transition to clinical practice, which will include requirements for licensure and certification, medical liability, billing and coding, and ethics. Another thread will consist of lectures on advanced and novel topics in medicine. Additionally, there will be a thread for development of leadership skills and advocacy. The culmination of the Thesis/Capstone project will also occur during this course, as will summative exams (Q9).
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1 | Repeatable 4 times (up to 4 units total)

PAS 299: Directed Reading in PA Studies

Faculty and students collaborate to design an individualized study course in one or more selected topics in physician assistant studies. Prerequisites: Successful completion of PAS 214
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-10 | Repeatable 3 times (up to 30 units total)

PAS 301: Internal Medicine Clerkship I

Teaches the natural history, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of medical illnesses. Emphasis is placed on acquiring the understanding, skills, and attitudes desirable in a scientific and compassionate PA. Students will perform histories and physical examinations, identify appropriate orders, order and interpret appropriate diagnostics studies to develop a differential diagnosis, and interpret information gathered from the patient assessment data to formulate a patient-centered treatment plan. Developing sound clinical reasoning skills is continuously emphasized. Students will be able to provide an accurate verbal presentation to the rotation preceptor, counsel patients about therapeutic procedures; and help to coordinate medical consultations by sub-specialty providers as needed to take appropriate care. Students will follow the progress of patients through their hospitalization, write a note appropriate for the patient¿s medical record and develop a discharge plan. Students will attend and participate in medical rounds and conferences.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 6
Instructors: Wright, H. (PI)
