In the second internship term, students continue to apply and review all elements of the patient care process as they intern with faculty clinicians in University and private practice clinics caring for patients. In lecture and small group discussion sessions, students critique and discuss videotaped patient encounters. Topics emphasized include patient and professional communication; cultural competence; clinical thinking; and case management. During the practical and didactic elements of the course, students also advance their skills in gathering clinical information; synthesizing laboratory and radiographic data; arriving at accurate diagnostic decisions; providing health counseling; and competently treating clinic patients.
