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 students 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 and explore patient-centered solutions to real-world problems. Students are also paired with a patient partner with whom they meet 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. Enrollment by Instructor Approval Only. Request an application by email to lydiatam@stanford.edu. Please submit an application by September 13 at 11:59PM. Those selected will be informed by September 16 at 11:59PM so that they may enroll in the course.

PAS 292: PAs in Health Care II: Introduction to Advanced Skill Training for PAs

The PAs in Health Care II: Introduction to Advanced Skill Training for PAs course will focus on advanced clinical skills including basic and advanced cardiac life support, imaging skills and interpretation along with additional proceduralnskills in preparation for clerkships.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2

PAS 294: PAs in Healthcare IV: Leadership, Advocacy, and Preparation for Practice

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, 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 Capstone research project will also occur during this course.

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.

PAS 303: Primary Care I

During the outpatient medicine rotation students will be involved in the initial and ongoing assessment of patients in all age groups. In addition to routine health maintenance, students will become familiar with common primary care and urgent care problems. Students will be responsible for taking medical histories, performing physical examinations, ordering appropriate diagnostic testing, interpreting results and forming a plan. 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. Patient education, counseling, and coordination of additional resources for patient care will also be included. The outpatient medicine rotations may take place in private offices, family practices, urgent care clinics, hospitals, or other ambulatory care clinics.
