The Academic Program

The Department of Medicine (MED) assists the student in integrating learning in the humanities, social sciences, and the physical and biological sciences by providing progressive experiences in clinical medicine. Early attention is given to the student's acquisition of habits of continuing self-education and basic clinical skills. These skills include collection and evaluation of data, clinical problem solving, and consideration and perceptiveness in dealing with patients, their families, and other members of the health team.

The department directs integrated residency training programs in community hospitals. The close association of students and graduate physicians in these programs affords valuable learning experiences. Research in selected clinical fields, for which facilities are available, is fostered.

The Academic Program

Instruction in obstetrics and gynecology (OBGN) is divided into four general areas: basic clerkship, student electives, residency training, and continuing medical education. The main objectives of the basic clerkship during the third year is to give students an overall perspective of the entire field, an in-depth knowledge of women's health care, and an ability to perform those technical skills necessary for the care of women. The elective experiences are developed to allow interested students the opportunity to acquire detailed knowledge and experience in women's health care or within specific areas of care.

The department directs a residency training program for medical graduates who desire specialty training in the field. The MD education program is closely integrated with residency training to maintain communication and learning experience throughout training. The department has an active research program in the clinical area of human reproduction. The department is divided into the following divisions: ambulatory care, education, endocrinology-infertility, fetal-maternal medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, oncology, urogynecology, and research.

The Academic Program

Pathology (PATH) is the study of disease. Instruction in pathology is open to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students and residents. All medical students may elect to take PATH 515 as a part of the problem-based learning curriculum. PATH 541 provides essential autopsy experience for all third- and fourth-year medical students, and residents may enroll in one or more of PATH 545, 670, and 699. Instruction in laboratory medicine for the practicing physician, clinical pathology, anatomic pathology, clinical immunology, and pathology of aging, nutrition, and/or alcoholism is offered.
The department directs an integrated residency program in pathology. Residents are based at Kaiser Hospital, Queen's Medical Center, and St. Francis Hospital and participate in the training of medical students and residents alike. Clinical faculty come from all the community hospitals and provide gross and microscopic specimens for demonstration and clinico-pathologic correlations for medical students and residents. In addition, they participate in seminars and give lectures along with the full- and part-time faculty.
