Description
Helps students develop the attitudes and skills necessary for the evaluation and management of patients with pulmonary disease. Students are expected to understand pulmonary disease in the context of internal medicine, using general as well as specific approaches to diagnosis. The clerkship affords direct patient involvement under supervision in the outpatient clinic and on inpatient consultation services. Critically ill patients with pulmonary disease in the ICU will be evaluated. Pulmonary function tests are evaluated daily, and student involvement in specialized studies is emphasized. Divisional clinical conferences are held weekly, and a joint medical-surgical conference bi-weekly. Each student has the option of spending one-half of the clerkship at the PAVAMC and one-half at the Stanford University Hospital on a rotational basis (that is, two weeks at the PAVAMC and two weeks at Stanford). These options are discussed and determined on the first day of the clerkship.
