In conjunction with your fellow team members, you will work as a general physician in our patient simulation, managing a patient’s case and formulating decisions based on new medical information and circumstances presented each day. As a public health professional, you will conduct an outbreak investigation in an effort to determine the cause of a widespread illness. As a member of a research evaluation panel, you will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of multiple research proposals and determine how limited research funds should be distributed.
Practice diagnosis and treatment in the PATIENT SIMULATION.
Students are given the rare opportunity to assess, diagnose, and treat a simulated patient using educational methods similar to those employed in graduate medical institutions. Students are challenged to think on their feet and incorporate the broad range of collegiate level knowledge that they acquire throughout the program in order to successfully complete the patient simulation challenge.
