PAS 202: Foundations of Clinical Neurosciences

Foundations of Clinical Neurosciences introduces students to the structure and function of the nervous system, including neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Applications to clinical medicine and neurology are emphasized. Enrollment limited to Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies students. Prerequisite: PAS 201.
Terms: Win | Units: 2
Instructors: Nevins, A. (PI)

PAS 212: Principles of Clinical Medicine I

This is the first 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 212, the focus us on the structure, function, disease and corresponding therapeutics of several "primary care" topics, particularly the musuloskeletal and dermatologic systems. In addition, basic neurology otorhinolargyngology, and ophthalmology will be covered.
Terms: Win | Units: 8

PAS 215: Principles of Clinical Medicine IV

This is the fourth 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 214, the focus is on the structure, function, disease, and corresponding therapeutics of the Neurologic, Psychiatric, Hematologic, Oncologic, and Autoimmune/Rheumatologic systems.
Terms: Win | Units: 10
Instructors: Burwell, N. (PI)

PAS 222: Clinical Therapeutics I

This course will provide a foundation for learning pharmaceutical therapies related to subjects covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine I course. In addition to general pharmacokinetic principles, the first segment of the course will cover the use of drugs applied to the skin and topical and systemically administered drugs for dermatologic diseases. Pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system, both sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions, will be overviewed in addition to gaining an understanding of how drug manipulation on cholinergic and adrenergic receptors modulate nerve activity. The course will conclude with an examination of drugs acting on the allergenic and pathogenic pathways as they pertain to ENT conditions.
Terms: Win | Units: 2
Instructors: Ip, E. (PI)

PAS 225: Clinical Therapeutics IV

This is the fourth course of a 4-part series focused on pharmacology and clinical therapeutics with topics related to subjects covered in the Principles of Clinical Medicine IV course. Topics will include neurology, psychiatry, oncology, and rheumatology. 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.
Terms: Win | Units: 2
Instructors: Ip, E. (PI)

PAS 251: Design and Conduct of Clinical and Epidemiological Studies

Intermediate Level. The skills to design, carry out, and interpret epidemiological studies, particularly of chronic diseases. Topics: epidemiologic concepts, sources of data, cohort studies, case-control studies, cross-sectional studies, sampling, measures of association, estimating sample size, and sources of bias. Prerequisite: A basic/introductory course in statistics or consent of instructor.
Terms: Win | Units: 3-4
Instructors: Popat, R. (PI)

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.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit

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.
