Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course provides an opportunity for students to integrate and synthesize professional skills in preparation for clinical rotations and veterinary practice. An introduction to the current VH electronic medical record system will be provided. Students will apply their knowledge of clinical communication, teamwork, clinical reasoning, and ethics to a variety of case scenarios.

Based on faculty observations and student feedback, we are narrowing the scope of the course, and reducing the number of credit hours accordingly. The revised version of the course will provide instruction on topics requested by students (electronic medical record) and better prepare them to navigate authentic medical cases during fourth-year rotations. The simulated ER and forensics cases have been removed. Other sessions, such as interprofessional communication, ethical dilemmas and malpractice have been streamlined/shortened. We are adding a brief, early clinical exposure in the form of AM treatment rounds, and expanding the hand off communication sessions.

College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Veterinary MedicineRegina SchoenfeldUpon review, outside consult appears to be unnecessary because the course is building upon veterinary medical content, as well as skills taught in prior veterinary courses. There's no overlap or redundancy with other departments.
all instructional resources are currently available within the CVM

The objective of this course is for students to integrate their professional skills and prepare for clinical rotations and early clinical practice.

mlnosbis 10/10/2018: I removed the comments from the previous course action.
1) Student learning outcomes in CIM do not match those on the syllabus. There is an extra learning outcome in the CIM form.

This discrepancy was resolved by adding an extra line break to the syllabus, and separating objective #5 so that it matches the formatting in CIM. A new syllabus has been uploaded.

cohen (10/10/2019): Other than Melissa's observation, the course action looks fine.
