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.

PAS 321: Emergency Medicine

Provides students with exposure to common problems encountered in an emergency room setting. Students will be responsible for taking medical histories, performing physical examinations, ordering and interpreting appropriate diagnostic testing, performing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as needed under appropriate supervision, and forming a patient-centered care plan for patients seen for emergent and non-emergent issues. The student will provide an accurate, pertinent and time-effective verbal presentation to the rotation preceptor and will write an accurate note suitable for inclusion in the patient's medical record. Students will identify criteria for hospital admission and coordinate the admission to the appropriate setting and service. During the Emergency Medicine rotation students may also be exposed to patients with life-threatening conditions such as cardiac/respiratory failure, trauma, shock, overdose, poisoning, allergic reactions, seizures.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 6

PAS 336: Behavioral Medicine

Provides students with exposure to a wide range of mental health issues in hospital and/or clinic-based settings. The clerkship is designed to solidify the knowledge of psychiatry that students have acquired in the Practice of Medicine course, as students gain practical skills in the application of this knowledge to clinical situations. Students will perform thorough histories including a mental status examination and will use tools for cognitive testing, order appropriate diagnostic studies, interpret information gathered from patient assessment data, and formulate a patient-centered treatment plan including pharmacological treatment when appropriate. The course will also offer an overview of psychosocial and biological treatment modalities for the major psychiatric disorders. Students will be required to recognize the various types of mental health issues that require referral to a specialist and to know which mental health problems can be handled by the non-specialist.

PATH 21N: The Living Genome: Implications for Biology and Beyond

IntroSem with Freshmen preference. The human genome carries the instructions for normal human development and reproduction. But it also carries predispositions to disease and clues to our evolution, ancestry, and identity. The genome may also be pliable to environmental influences and genetic engineering. Through directed readings, discussion, and activities, students will learn about the human genome and applications of genome science and technology across diverse disciplines including medicine, comparative biology, evolutionary biology, paternity testing, and forensics. The broad goal is to become informed and engaged about genome science and its implications for both the individual and society. Prerequisites: High School Biology
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA

PATH 302A: Pathology Clerkship

VISITING: Open to visitors. TYPE OF CLERKSHIP: Elective. DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this clerkship is to introduce students to pathology clinical services. The clerkship is customizable based on student interests, with experiences on services in both anatomic and clinical pathology or just one of these fields. For students contemplating a career in pathology, this clerkship provides an excellent opportunity for exposure to the field and to the residency program in pathology at Stanford. Students interested in other fields will learn how pathology interfaces with other areas in medicine, as well as the basic sciences. Student rotations are typically by week on a specific service. Anatomic Pathology services include surgical pathology subspecialties (breast, CT/ENT, GYN, GI, Pediatric, Bone/Soft tissue and GU pathology), intra-operative consultation/frozens service, cytopathology, dermatopathology, neuropathology, hematopathology and autopsy. Clinical Pathology services include hematolo more »

Clinical Pathology services include hematology, coagulation, transfusion medicine, chemistry/immunology, biochemical genetics, cytogenetics, microbiology/virology, and molecular diagnostics. Exposure to some services may be limited based on service specific scheduling. Students are expected to work-up cases and review findings with faculty at signout times. Occasional presentations on educational cases/topics are also sometimes a component of the clerkship depending on rotation/service. AP rotations may require handing gross specimens and learning the basics of gross dissection for pathology diagnosis (with supervision). Attendance at pathology conferences is an essential part of the clerkship. Internal Rotators: please download the Department of Pathology Clerkship Application and return to pathology clerkship coordinator as soon as your registration is complete, or you receive an approval from the program director.
