ACE CURRICULUM

Year One and Year Two

ACED 800. Introduction to Doctoring. 0-3 Hours.
Introduction to Doctoring is a 3-week, case-based, multidisciplinary course, taught by faculty members from foundational science and clinical departments. This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills to obtain a medical history in combination with a head-to-toe physical examination, basic life support and an introduction to the electronic medical record. In addition, students will be introduced to key topics in population health and social sciences. Students participate in large and small group activities, including lectures, case-based collaborative learning, problem-based learning, clinical skills lab and simulations. Students are assessed by multiple-choice examinations, small group and clinical skills performance, and professional development. Prerequisite: Medical School admission requirements. LEC.

ACED 805. Molecular and Cellular Medicine. 0-8 Hours.
Molecular and Cellular Medicine is a 9-week, case-based, multidisciplinary course, taught by faculty members from foundational science and clinical departments. The focus of the course is the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying health and disease. This course integrates content from the foundational, social, and clinical sciences. It includes clinical skills instruction in medical history and physical examination. Students participate in large and small group activities, including lectures, case-based collaborative learning, problem-based learning, clinical skills lab and simulations. Students will work collaboratively to master general principles, evaluate clinical literature, and develop tools for life-long learning. Students are assessed by multiple-choice examinations, small group and clinical skills performance, and professional development. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Introduction to Doctoring or permission of Associate Dean for Student Affairs. LEC.

ACED 810. Infection, Blood and Immunity. 0-8 Hours.
Infection, Blood and Immunity is a 9-week, case-based, multidisciplinary course, taught by faculty members from foundational science and clinical departments. The course integrates critical principles related to microbial infection, as well as normal and abnormal activity of the immune system and blood, including content from the foundational, social, and clinical sciences. It includes clinical skills instruction in medical history and physical examination. Students participate in large and small group activities, including lectures, case-based collaborative learning, problem-based learning, clinical skills lab and simulations. Students will work collaboratively to master general principles, evaluate clinical literature, and develop tools for life-long learning. Students are assessed by multiple-choice examinations, small group and clinical skills performance, and professional development. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Molecular and Cellular Medicine or permission of Associate Dean for Student Affairs. LEC.

ACED 815. Respiration and Circulation. 0-8 Hours.
Respiration and Circulation is a 9-week, case-based, multidisciplinary course, taught by faculty members from foundational science and clinical departments.
