COURSE DIRECTOR: Julia Hegert, M.D.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Fourth Year Medical Student

COURSE GOALS: The course is designed to provide the student with the opportunity for in-depth study and performance of complete autopsies. Emphasis is placed on gross anatomy and gross and microscopic pathology as it is reflected in the living patient. The student will review the clinical charts and gather the adequate clinical information needed for the clinicopathological correlation of the disease process. The student will attend weekly autopsy, neuropathology, and other departmental conferences. Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to abstract the clinical chart, perform an autopsy, describe gross specimens, prepare sections, interpret microscopic findings and present a summary of those cases for which he is responsible.

METHODS OF  EVALUATION: Written and oral autopsy presentation

MEETING PLACE AND TIME: Graduate Medical Education, Medical Education Building; 86 W. Underwood Street, 1st Floor Lobby, 8:00a.m. (day one)

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Fourth Year Medical Student

COURSE GOALS: The course is designed to acquaint the student with all aspects of a large hospital clinical laboratory. The student will learn the capabilities of the laboratory by rotating through hematology, immunology, chemistry and microbiology. Within each section, he/she will perform selected prototype procedures, i.e. coagulation testing, blood smear differentials, chemical analysis, isolation of microorganisms, etc. The student will select patients with abnormal lab values, review their medical charts and present this information to the attending clinical pathologist for discussion. In addition, he or she will participate in clinical pathological conferences and other conferences offered by the department.

COURSE MATERIALS: None

METHODS OF EVALUATION:  Daily observation and sign out, oral presentation.
