Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a medical student? In this course, you will learn about the fundamentals of the practice of medicine through two exciting weeks of immersive activities. You and your peers will explore the physiology of the human body in an online classroom setting, and experience an in-depth look at the anatomy of organs in the virtual anatomy lab. You will step inside the shoes of a doctor, learning how to conduct a medical interview and perform an extensive physical exam. Finally, you will delve into important ethical issues often encountered in the medical field.
Modern medicine is not merely a hodgepodge of isolated facts, figures, problems, and procedures; in reality, it is a tightly integrated practice. This course adheres to this principle, effectively combining essential aspects of medicine to enhance students' understanding and retention. As an example, consider the heart. Among many other things, you will learn about the science of heart function, see the human heart anatomically and identify its structures, practice conducting a medical interview and cardiopulmonary physical exam for a patient with chest pain, and discuss the moral questions regarding a potential heart transplant. Through this interwoven approach to medical education, you will surely leave the course with a sharply heightened sense of both the art and science of healing.
This course will be taught by current medical students from Brown's Warren Alpert Medical School.
Prerequisites: Students who take this course are expected to have a strong foundation in biology and an eagerness to experience medicine in an interactive setting.
