Physiology Question-Based Learning - Hwee Ming Cheng - Häftad () | Bokus
The Doctor-Patient relationship is the medium through which doctoring occurs and in fact the ethical core of medicine. Instruction to manage this relationship is an integral part of medical training that is heavily influenced by informal and hidden curricula. Informal curricula entail learning that takes place through interpersonal interactions. Hidden curricula reflect the values of the organizational structure and culture. Intrinsic to these curricula is role modeling—students learning from observing and imitating the behaviors of their teachers.
The topics are examined in several clinical contexts such as acute care, pediatrics, geriatrics, and rehabilitation medicine. Small group sessions within lecture provide a chance for in-depth discussion. Medical Ethics is taught in 20 hours in the first trimester along with Doctor-Patient Relationship course. Medical ethics includes concepts of legal competence, informed consent, confidentiality, reportable illnesses, ethical issues in patients with HIV infection, voluntary and involuntary hospitalization, advance directives, death and euthanasia, medical malpractice, and impaired physicians.
By the end of the course students will develop a thorough understanding of ethical and legal issues in medicine. The aim of Biochemistry — I course module is to provide the 1st trimester medical students a solid foundation in the biochemical concepts about the macromolecules and relationship between the three-dimensional structure of macromolecules of living cells and their biological activities within the major metabolic pathways of the human body.
The molecular genetics part of the course allows understanding the basic principles of chromosome structure, nucleic acid functions, gene expression, recombinant DNA techniques, gene cloning, interfering RNA events, recent advancement and significance of DNA sequencing technologies, as well as other aspects of gene analysis and gene manipulating techniques. The Biochemistry — II course is designed for 2nd trimester students with the aim to provide insight into appreciating how the understanding of metabolic processes occurring in the mammalian body, could contribute to the understanding and explanation of pathological phenomena.
Such knowledge will allow understanding how these biochemical processes change during disease, and understand how such processes offer opportunities for prevention, medical intervention and treatment and management of disease. The Medical Genetics portion of the course is entirely focused on human genetics, inherited traits, and their variations.
The course introduces some of the most common genetic diseases. Three major disciplines are covered during the course within teaching hours: a Basic microbiology and infectious diseases; b Basic and clinical immunology; c Parasitology and tropical medicine. Each one of these disciplines is taught into two parts: I basic principles and introduction to the scientific background of the discipline followed by II clinical description of various diseases, symptoms, diagnosis, etiology, and treatment.
The course teaches the role of the microbial agents in patients and in healthy subjects. The course gradually builds sufficient knowledge in the field of medical microbiology and immunology that will prepare the student for his future medical career. Topics covered include bacterial physiology and genetics, introduction to virology and mycology, microorganisms of medical importance bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites hours , principles of molecular and cellular immunology, and immunopathological disorders 40 hours.
Laboratory exercises are offered as part of the course that will provide hands-on experience with basic microbiological and immunological techniques 10 practical hours. The course is designed to teach principles of organization of the nervous system and give an appreciation of the biology of the nerve and neurological cells. Gross and microscopic anatomy of the nervous system will be presented as an Inter-disciplinary course. Lectures deal with the cytology of nerve cells and their processes, synapses, neurological cells and nerve sheaths, axoplasmic flow and growth of nerve processes area also considered.
Architecture and organization of the cerebral cortex and spinal cord as related to functions. Neurological case studies are included as an integrated approach to the curriculum. I Hate Running!
