    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.

    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.

  • 93ZP710 - LEADERSHIP IN MEDICINE

    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.

    Description:
    This course is designed for 4th year students interested in a career in combined internal medicine-pediatrics, or “Med-Peds.” The rotation will consist of both clinical time (90%) and library time (10%). The clinical time will be 100% outpatient, focusing on the care of adult and pediatric patients in the outpatient arena. Much of the focus will be primary care related, including preventive medicine, well-child care, acute care, and counseling of patients. The attendings involved in this course will be exclusively trained in Med-Peds, in order to the student to gain appropriate comfort in learning what distinguished Med-Peds as a unique specialty. The student will spend approximately 50% of the clinical time in a community health center, working with faculty who care primarily for underserved populations, and approximately 50% in a metropolitan clinic (“private practices”) located in Avon, IN, associated with IU Health at IU Health West. The library time will consist of choosing one particular patient seen by the student during the course, asking a clinical question based on that patient, and performing a literature search. The student will review appropriate literature, and then present a brief PowerPoint presentation on the appropriate clinical topic to various attendings and residents at a Med-Peds conference. Students will also be able to attend the weekly Med-Peds conference.

  • 93ZI760 - QUIP: QUALITY IMPROVEMENT IN PRACTICE

    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 twice 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. Each student is expected to make a tangible contribution to the case development process. 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.

  • 49MX716 - GERIATRIC MEDICINE

    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.

  • 93MD700 - CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES

    Description:
    Students who take this elective will enhance their abilities to care for patients with infections or suspected infections. They accomplish this primarily by seeing patients with infectious diseases problems at University, VA, and Eskenazi Hospitals. Students see patients at the request of other physicians because of known or suspected infectious diseases problems. They gather data by interviewing and examining the patient, reviewing the medical record, and consulting textbooks, medical literature, and other sources. They synthesize this data into a coherent presentation that culminates in the preparation of a list of the patient’s infectious diseases problems with proposed diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to these problems. Students then oversee the execution of the proposed solutions by visiting the patients on a daily basis and providing ongoing advice to the referring physicians, all under the guidance of an infectious diseases physician. Students also participate in two special didactic sessions each week, directed by an infectious diseases physician, during which they discuss cases after reading pre-assigned selected materials. Students on this rotation will also attend at least one outpatient session during the rotation in a clinic that provides care for patients with HIV infections and sexually transmitted infections; outpatient clinics that students attend will be at University, VA, or Eskenazi Hospital. Each student attends a half-day session in the Bell Flower Clinic, the county’s sexually transmitted diseases clinic. Hospital assignments are arranged by negotiation with other students and the course director on the first day of the elective. Students round an average of six days per week, depending upon the volume and acuity of patients.

  • 45MR706 - NEPHROLOGY - NORTHWEST INDIANA

    Description:
    Nephrology Specialists, P.C. 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.

Teaching will take place through daily work rounds in the hospital and office. Consultations will be provided for critically ill patients in the intensive and coronary care units in addition to patients on the wards. Commonly encountered syndromes include respiratory failure, shock, sepsis, organ failure, pleural effusions, pneumonia, and various chronic and acute lung diseases. Emphasis is placed on bedside imaging with focused critical care ultrasound to extend physical exam and allow better understanding of pathophysiology. Students will be given the opportunity to image pleural effusions, atelectasis, normal lung sliding, basic focused cardiac ultrasound including assessment of volume status, and studies for DVT and hydronephrosis.

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.
