    Description:
    Students will be assigned to rotate at either the Eskenazi or the Methodist Emergency Departments (although preferences will be attempted to be honored, students will be equitably distributed across both sites). Both facilities function as Level 1 trauma centers with large, diverse patient populations and serve as the clinical training sites for our EM residency. Eskenazi sees 100,000 patients/year who are primarily adults with medical or traumatic complaints. In addition, Eskenazi sees critically ill and injured children. The Methodist EMTC sees approximately 100,000 patients/year with 20% of that number being pediatric. There is an emphasis on focused patient evaluations and discriminate test ordering for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries. Principles of triage, prioritization, clinical decision-making, and multi-tasking are emphasized. The students assume primary responsibility for their patients and are staffed by Board Certified EM faculty and upper level EM residents. Exposure to the key elements of many other aspects of Emergency Medicine (Medical Toxicology, Out of Hospital Care) is possible. The clinical experience (45-55 hours per week) is supplemented by a structured didactic series covering the more common disease entities encountered in the ED setting. A suture lab focusing on wound closure techniques is included in the didactic series.

    Description:
    The student will actively participate in the activities of a 56,000 visit Emergency Department and work with and under the supervision of a full-time emergency medicine staff. He/she will examine patients, perform diagnostic procedures and work with the staff during treatment and disposition of patients. This will be done with emphasis on the student taking responsibility for the patient's care. The student may also be exposed to the pre-hospital care including telemetry and a ride-along program with paramedics. The department has undergone significant remodeling and now has 31 patient rooms. Seven of these rooms are devoted to a Fast Track for less acute problems, which the student would be exposed to. The Emergency Department also has an increased emphasis on trauma, as the hospital is developing a Level II Trauma Center for Evansville. Because of this emphasis on trauma, it is expected that the Emergency Department will be seeing more traumatic cases, for which the student would be actively involved. The Emergency Department also offers an eight-bed observation chest pain clinic which gives the student the opportunity to follow the patient from the Emergency Department through the observation and through discharge, all within 24 hours. Members of the physician staff are emergency medicine residency trained and can offer career guidance in the field of emergency medicine. This elective is conducted at Deaconess Hospital, Inc. a 300 bed hospital and may be taken in sequence with any other elective offered at the Evansville Center for Medical Education.

    Description:
    The medical student will spend most of his/her time in the Emergency Department caring for both medical and surgical emergencies. One or two Emergency Department staff physicians (all board-eligible or board-certified in Emergency Medicine) will be present to staff each patient encounter. A great variety of cases will be seen by the medical student, e.g.; lacerations, burns, fractures, multiple trauma, acute myocardial infarctions, as well as a broad spectrum of medical surgical and pediatric emergencies. Special emphasis will be directed toward those areas of medicine that are unique to emergency medicine: toxicology, pre-hospital care, environment emergencies, resuscitation, and disaster management. The medical student will initially take a history and examine the patient. The staff physician will then discuss the case emphasizing pertinent historical and physical findings, formulating a differential diagnosis, and initiating a plan for work-up and treatment. The physician student team will also decide upon any further treatment modalities and the disposition of each case. This may include writing preliminary admission orders to the hospital. At the completion of the elective, the medical student should have a better understanding of the philosophy, function, and capabilities of a community emergency department treating over 75,000 cases yearly. The medical student should have a sound approach to the initial diagnosis and treatment of most life-threatening conditions as well as many acute illnesses seen in other out-patient setting and have gained an appreciation for the specialty of Emergency Medicine. The student will work approximately 45 hours per week in the Emergency Department with some clinical activities scheduled for evening and weekend hours.

  • 93ZE730 - EMERGENCY MEDICINE STUDENTS IN RESEARCH PROGRAM | Share Page

    Description:
    This elective is intended to promote research and evidence-based medicine education to medical students. The program provides on-line didactics, assigned readings and tests to insure that the students gain an understanding of basic clinical research principles, research ethics, and evidence-based medicine. The course director will pair the student with one or more faculty mentors, and the student will assist the mentor with an ongoing research project in emergency care. All students must complete human subjects training (CITI). Work on individual projects can be diverse, and may range from data collection, data entry, and telephone calls, to real time screening for patients in ongoing clinical research. In addition, students are asked to attend the scheduled biweekly departmental clinical research meeting, and may have other lecture and reading requirements. Students may be asked by their faculty mentor to cover a designated number of 6-hour shifts in the emergency departments of Methodist and Eskenazi hospitals to identify patients eligible for ongoing studies. An opportunity also exists to work in translational laboratory setting. In most cases, students will be paired one on one or in small groups with a faculty mentor. This represents a unique opportunity to allow medical students to directly participate in the performance of clinical research, while also providing them with an education on basic research methodology and research ethics. Occasionally, as a result of their work on elective, students have been named as authors on abstracts or manuscripts.

  • 93ZP710 - LEADERSHIP IN MEDICINE | Share Page

    Description:
    The curricula of most US medical schools provide little or no opportunity for medical students to study leadership. Physicians are trained to view medicine in terms of the physician-patient relationship, yet many of the greatest opportunities to treat disease and promote health lie in the organizational and social contexts of healthcare. The future of medicine and the patients we serve depends on cultivating responsible and effective physician leaders. This course introduces medical students to the key traits and skills of effective leaders and provides them an opportunity to study these broader contexts of healthcare. To gain a basic understanding of the traits and skills of leaders, students will read an eclectic range of texts including imaginative literature, biography, history, and business. We will discuss each of these readings and review student progress on the course project in class meetings. Every student also contributes to a class project. The course meets for an average of four hours per day.

  • 93ZI760 - QUIP: QUALITY IMPROVEMENT IN PRACTICE | Share Page

    Description:
    This elective is designed to teach skill and knowledge to 4th Year Medical students in Quality Improvement and provide the opportunity to participate in a hands-on Quality Improvement Project. We define Quality Improvement (QI) as identified by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) as reflecting on how we practice medicine and looking for ways to offer better outcomes, greater ease of use and lowering costs. To do this, we need clear improvement aims, ways to monitor the progress and above all, a willingness among clinicians to make changes when evidence is presented. Tools and methods exist to help clinicians work together to study practice issues and arrive at a best known and agreed upon method. This elective offers compelling reasons to embrace Quality Improvement in practice and in education. Students will spend three days/week in a clinical setting and two days/week in a classroom setting learning and applying (using web-based simulation) Quality Improvement principles.

    This course is designed for students who are especially interested in academic medicine. Attendance and participation are required components for success in this course. Students are expected to make a tangible contribution to the case writing process by developing and assessing team-based learning modules, as well as investigating current literature on the subject. This course provides an academic context in which medical students take responsibility for their own learning. Students will investigate the application and academic success of team-based learning (TBL) as an element in undergraduate medical education. Students will also design, develop, and assess TBL modules for use in the teaching of pathology and mechanisms of disease. At the beginning of the course, students will be provided a course orientation and a timetable for submission of assignments and completion of various components of the TBL cases. Students will meet with the course director at least once each week to edit and review the progress of the TBL cases they are authoring. Evaluation of student performances will be by the course director, and, if appropriate, by a clinical faculty member chosen by the course director. Exceptionally well-written cases may be used for instruction of future students. The goals of this elective are: 1.To provide the student with an opportunity to acquire, utilize, and refine communication skills that will be helpful in their future career. 2. To facilitate the acquisition of skills and attitudes by the student related to lifelong learning. 3.

  • 93MI760 - ADVANCED PHYSICAL DIAGNOSIS | Share Page

    Description:
    Diagnostic testing begins with a thorough, yet hypothesis-driven history (1st line of testing) and physical examination (2nd line of testing). When utilized thoughtfully in conjunction with a good history, the physical exam enables the physician to effectively complete his/her bedside diagnostic repertoire. These first two lines of bedside diagnostic testing can then, in turn, help inform/guide the physician to pursue additional testing (3rd line) in a more purposeful and well-reasoned manner. This course is designed to improve the quality of students' physical examination skills by way of (1) enhancing their ability to recognize, describe, and interpret physical exam findings and (2) developing their basic skills in interpretation of diagnostic test characteristics.

    This inpatient rotation offers students the opportunity to provide hands on care for patients admitted directly to the IUH Methodist Hospitalist and patients whose specialty medical or surgical care is complicated by comorbidities generally managed by Hospitalists. Patients comprise the entire socioeconomic spectrum in the Midwest and have a broad range of medical problems, such as congestive heart failure, diabetes mellitus, acute coronary syndromes, cardiac arrhythmias, syncope, malignant hypertension, GI bleeding, pneumonia, COPD, pulmonary emboli, sepsis, pyelonephritis, acute mental status change, TIA/stroke, acute and chronic renal failure. The preceptorial approach for teaching ensures direct, continuous interaction with faculty for each student. Students will provide patient care in a multidisciplinary care model that includes nurse, pharmacists, care managers, social workers, nutritionists, physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists, Geriatrics and Palliative Care. The experience will foster collegial relationships with physicians from other specialties and other caregivers in a nurturing, real world environment. The student may be assigned four to six patients to co-manage with the attending Hospitalist. An Internal Medicine resident and/or Transitional Year intern may be part of the team, and, if present, will augment the learning experience for the student. Students will b expected to attend, teaching conferences that include case presentations, journal clubs, EKG reading and chest conferences. At the completion of the rotation, a student should be able to logically approach patient evaluation, construct an evidence-based management plan and communicate that plan to patients and fellow caregivers. The overarching goal of this rotation is to learn the basics of inpatient medicine and to develop an understanding of how a busy hospitalist team functions

  • 49MX716 - GERIATRIC MEDICINE | Share Page

    Description:
    This is an elective aimed to provide exposure to geriatric medicine for students who are interested in geriatrics as a career option. The student will gain experience dealing with how to deliver appropriate health care to the often complex older adult and their caregivers. The student will participate in both the office and nursing home practice of 3 full time geriatricians. The major emphasis of the month will be on the special needs of the often frail individuals with multiple chronic illnesses. A multi-disciplinary focus is stressed in dealing with geriatric syndromes in the geriatric assessment clinic, the specialty outpatient clinic and in the nursing home. Importance is placed on successfully dealing with the heterogeneity of the elderly, the importance of the psychological, social and functional aspects of care, the proper utilization of palliative care strategies and the importance of ethical decision-making. Students will interact with residents from the St Vincent Hospital Family Medicine and Internal Medicine training programs who rotate through on their required geriatric medicine months and also with the geriatric medicine Fellow. The majority of time spent is in the clinical setting but there are core topics covered in didactic sessions covering topics such as; dementia, delirium, falls, urinary incontinence, geriatric therapeutics and normal aging. The student is required to prepare a brief presentation on a topic of their choice at the end of the month requiring library or internet research. There is no night call or weekend responsibility on this elective. We do prefer to enroll students with an interest in geriatrics as a career.

    Description:
    What do you need to know about older adults to be an intern This elective will give you experience in the health care of older adults that will be fundamental for adult medical and surgical residencies. You will round with a geriatrician daily on an Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Service at IU Health Methodist campus. The goal of the ACE Service is to prevent functional decline or iatrogenic complications in patients age 65 and older during their hospitalization. This rotation offers the opportunity to work alongside geriatricians toward that goal as well as geriatrics fellows, Department of Medicine residents who are completing a one-month required geriatrics rotation, and other professionals who provide care to older adults. Additionally, you will see patients in the outpatient setting particularly to provide outpatient consultation to older adults. Similar to the inpatient ACE consults, the outpatient consults focus on maintaining function and independence toward optimizing quality of life.

    Students taking this elective will gain experience in the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with infections or suspected infections. The primary mode of learning will be by seeing patients in both a busy tertiary-care community regional hospital and also in the outpatient ID clinic. Elective will be approximately 80% inpatient and 20% outpatient. Students will be functioning as a consultant, performing complete history and physical examination on the initial visit and subsequently following those patients on daily rounds, under the guidance of an infectious disease physician. They will gather available data, consult textbooks and literature as necessary, and prepare a list of infectious disease problems with expanded infectious differential diagnosis. Students will then provide proposed, evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for each problem. Rounding in the hospital is multidisciplinary and will also include an infectious disease pharmacist and also pharmacy students. Students will also learn about the techniques and tests performed in the microbiology lab by rounding in the lab. In the outpatient clinic, students will be able to follow-up on hospitalized patients and also be exposed to HIV and Hepatitis C care. Schedule for students will be 7 days on and 7 days off, 12 hour days, to mirror the schedule of the infectious disease physicians. One-on-one faculty interaction and supervision. Two 10-15 minute presentations regarding infectious disease topics relevant to patient care.

  • 45MR706 - NEPHROLOGY - NORTHWEST INDIANA | Share Page

    Description:
    Northwest Indiana Nephrology of Northwest Indiana offer a course to medical students which is designed to give them a general overview of the field of nephrology with in-depth experience in specific techniques of nephrologic care: renal biopsy, hemodialysis, various forms of peritoneal dialysis, and hemofiltration. The student is exposed to the management of very ill, intensive care, patients in terms of fluid and electrolyte balance, total parenteral nutrition (TPN), hemofiltration which is done coincidentally with TPN when the patient is oligoanuric. The physicians have access to eight Intensive Care settings in which consultations are made with follow-up care being required. The student is exposed to fluid and electrolyte therapy and management, calcium and phosphorus metabolism, water metabolism problems, etc. In addition to exposure to diagnosis and treatment of acute renal failure, there are approximately 250 chronic renal failure patients whose care will be examined by the medical student program. These patients are treated with chronic hemodialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, and/or transplantation. The management of outpatient dialysis is stressed, as well as the in-hospital care of chronic dialysis patients who become unstable from whatever cause (bowel obstruction, myocardial infarction, septicemia, dialysis-related peritonitis, etc. The student has various options as to how he spends his time with the physicians presenting the course. The student will be expected to participate in all of the aspects of nephrologic care, diagnosis, and therapy mentioned above plus he may elect to spend more time in one specific area after having been exposed to each of the areas. That means that the student, after experiencing acute and chronic hemodialysis, intensive care medicine, and outpatient clinic, may choose to spend the last 7-10 days of his experience in one those settings, i.e., the chronic outpatient dialysis unit, the home training CAPD area, intensive care area, etc. Of course, reading materials will be provided which are pertinent to each of the nephrology subareas the student attends. The feedback we have had from students in the past is that their preparation for primary care as interns was greatly enhanced by exposure to the nephrology student elective. There is space for students at any one time.

    Description:
    The student will spend 4 days per week in the obesity clinic. Here they will have the chance to see new patients, active weight loss patients, and maintenance patients. They will have an opportunity to see some patients independently as they become comfortable. There will be a wide exposure to co-morbidities including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and heart disease. Learning to use nutritional therapy as medicine and making appropriate medication adjustments including insulin, will be an important focus. They will also have the opportunity to observe our research group and interact with our research staff. Our research project is a 2 year study on the effect of a ketogenic diet on diabetes or prediabetes. We see patients in large group 10 - 15 so it will provide an opportunity to see group interaction as well as more detail on this nutritional approach for disease management. A nutrition related project decided upon the first week will be completed during this time. The project may be a literature review of a specific diet intervention, creation of patient education material, or a micronutrient review.

    The elective does provide opportunities for inter professional collaboration. The very nature of our rounding in the intensive care units now involves multidisciplinary care rounds which including bedside nurses, respiratory therapists, clinical pharmacist, speech and physical therapists and social workers. On some units this takes the form of 3 times a week physical rounding of the entire team at the patient's bedside. On other units there is a daily "huddle" at a central conference room involving the various disciplines .

    Description:
    The purpose of this elective, given near the end of the senior academic year, is to survey in depth selected medical topics useful to a physician entering internship, especially an internal medicine or family practice residency. Emphasis is placed on (1. correlation of the basic science and clinical aspects of the diseases being discussed, and (2. current therapies and the rationale behind them. To achieve maximal medical success, differential therapeutics must follow as logical a course as differential diagnosis. Clinical therapeutics and problem solving will be highlighted. Teaching methods will include lectures, and discussion groups focusing on clinical case histories. Attendance is required at the discussion groups and the student is expected to come with previously prepared management plans for each of the clinical cases. The subject matter is clinical but there are no patient care responsibilities.
