VCOM College Catalog and Student Handbook
o Block 4: Clinical procedural skills most common to the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems (Arterial Blood Gas, EKG, Pulmonary Function Test, and airway management) are taught in the clinical laboratory format. • (MED 7326) Preventive Medicine, Epidemiology, and Public Health: Clinical Prevention: 2 credit hours The Preventive Medicine course provides a population health perspective to clinical prevention and reinforces evidence-based principles as applied in the fields of infectious disease, chronic disease, mental and behavioral health, occupational and environmental health, and global health. Community and population health principles are addressed by identifying concepts integral to health promotion and disease prevention. Students are also introduced to analyzing data on disease outbreaks and emerging diseases and applying measures to control the spread of disease. This course includes an Interprofessional Experience (IPE) experience. • (MED 7350) Comprehensive Assessment IV: Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Systems 1 credit hour Osteopathic physicians must demonstrate the understanding and application of established and evolving principles of foundational biomedical and clinical sciences integral to the practice of patient-centered osteopathic medical care. This assessment provides a benchmark for the osteopathic medical student to use as a measure of that integrated learning process using a comprehensive, multiple-choice format completed at the conclusion of Block 4. These questions will help students not only with developing a knowledge base for the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems, but also with the comprehension skills required to perform well on future board testing.
