Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine—Osteopathic Medicine Program 57 to prepare for upcoming courses within the medical school curriculum. (3.0 credit hours) COM 6000—Principles of Clinical Medicine I This course has several components. Using multiple learning modalities, the course begins in the fall semester and continues as Principles of Clinical Medicine II during the winter semester. The components of the course include Interactive Learning Group (ILG), a problem-based, small group using patient cases for discussion and analysis with a clinical facilitator; Standardized Patient Encounters (SPE) with an interpersonal skills review session—a one-on-one student experience with patients who have been trained to portray medical problems; Clinical Skills Exam (CSE), a cumulative examination at the end of the semester similar to the SPE but involving multiple clinical stations; and KBIT, an online, advanced, instructional sciences-derived, artificial intelligence-based approach to differential diagnosis training and assessment. (2.0 credit hours) COM 6001—Principles of Clinical Medicine II This course is a continuation of Principles of Clinical Medicine I. It has several components. Usingmultiple learningmodalities, the course that began in the fall semester will now continue as Principles of Clinical Medicine II during the winter semester. The components of the course include Interactive Learning Group (ILG), a problem-based, small group using patient cases for discussion and analysis with a clinical facilitator; Clinical Skills Exam (CSE), cumulative examinations midway and at the end of the semester involving multiple clinical stations; lectures on male and female exams; guided practical sessions for male and female exams ; and KBIT, an online, advanced, instructional sciences-derived, artificial intelligence-based approach to differential diagnosis training and assessment. (1.5 credit hours) COM 6005—Medical Jurisprudence An attendance-required, mandatory, interactive program involving the issues of law that impact on a medical student and physician. Specific vignettes, clinical interactions, and role play are used to underscore some of the issues concerning actions by the Board of Osteopathic Medicine, and the issues around malpractice. Legal principles and specific cases involved in medical negligence, as well as those factors that also adversely affect the practice of osteopathic medicine, will be emphasized. (0.5 credit hours) COM 6030—Principles of Radiology Through the standard lecture format, this course provides an overview of common radiologic modalities used in clinical practice. The fundamentals presented aim to foster an interest in the field of radiology and provide a framework upon which future courses are then able to add more specific clinical applications. (1.0 credit hour) COM 6040—Principles of Pathology The purpose of this course is to introduce the fundamental concepts of general pathology so the student may understand the basic pathological processes involved in development of diseases most likely to be encountered in hospitals and clinics. The gap between preclinical and clinical subjects may thus be spanned with a scientific foundation of the etiology, pathogenesis, morphologic alterations, and effects of diseases. The course consists of fundamental principles of general pathology, such as cell injury, inflammation, hemodynamic derangements (including thrombosis, infarction, and shock), basic pathologic processes of infectious diseases and immunity in contributing to disease, and general discussion of neoplasia. (2.0 credit hours) COM 6050—Principles of Pharmacology This 30-hour course consists of basic pharmacological concepts and principles needed for the applied clinical courses to follow during the semester. (2.0 credit hours) COM 6065—Research Practicum The main objectives of this course are to prepare students for advanced research by examining how to plan, conduct, and report on empirical investigations. The course will cover techniques applicable to each of the steps of a research project, including formulating research questions, hypothesis building, data analysis (using both qualitative and quantitative methods), building evidence, assessing validity, and publishing. It also will cover ethics, plagiarism, and copyright related to conducting research. By the end of the course, students are expected to conduct and complete a team research project. (1.0 credit hour) COM 6082—Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) PALS presents a systematic, interactive approach dealing with the survival of critically ill and injured children. This care includes a broad spectrumof services, from early identification of problems through pre-hospital, hospital, and rehabilitative care. It also presents a way for resuscitation providers to treat a desperately ill patient in a coordinated way, regardless of whether the response team consists of one person, two people, or a team. PALS-trained providers will use the same guidelines and approaches inside and outside the hospital, as well as nationally and internationally. This course will consist of 13 hours of interactive instruction supplemented by audiovisuals; demonstration of required skills on Pediatric Advanced Life Support Manikins; and practice using defibrillators, EKG monitors, and intubation equipment. Instruction will be formatted on case-based scenarios. (1.0 credit hour) COM 6090—Geriatrics This course of instruction provides an overview of geriatric problems or syndromes affecting older adults, using a case-
