(48.0 credit hours) COM 9200—Predoctoral Research Fellowship The goal of the research fellowship is to provide a year-long, structured training experience in conceptualizing, conducting, and disseminating research for select medical students in the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine (KPCOM). The fellowship consists of three core activities: completing academic coursework, serving as research associate on an existing research study, and participating in communication of scientific knowledge. The percentage of time each fellow will dedicate to the three activities will be outlined in an individualized fellowship training plan. Following the model of the OPP fellowship, the fellowship year will occur between the M2 and M3 years. In addition to their fellowship year, fellows will receive tuition remission for their M3 and M4 years. (48.0 credit hours) COM 9300—Medical Spanish This course is designed for students in health care with little or no formal background in Spanish to obtain the language skills needed to carry out a basic conversation with a Spanish-speaking patient. This course also provides students who are fluent in Spanish with the opportunity to learn medical terminology and/or to use Spanish in a patient encounter. It utilizes an online format of independent modules supplemented by optional weekly tutoring sessions. The modules focus on medical vocabulary, phrases, and grammar needed to communicate in Spanish during a patient encounter. The tutoring sessions focus on providing live practice and help with pronunciation. Students are evaluated by three online, modular quizzes and a language skills examination (a competency-based, standardized, patient assessment). (1.5 credit hours) COM 9400—Preclinical Preceptorship This course provides the opportunity for the student to participate in a self-guided experience in health-related fields. The student will be under the supervision of a Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty member. Publications and presentations may be generated from this experience. (2.0 credit hours) COM 9500—Guided Study Special assignment on a clinical or scientific subject, under faculty supervision. (1–12 credit hours) COM 9600/9601/9602—Research COM 9600, COM 9601, and COM 9602 are a series of three courses to be taken consecutively.
