Nervous & Psychiatric and Endocrine Systems II

This block includes two organ systems-based modules: The Nervous & Psychiatric System module, part II, will build on the basic knowledge of the nervous system to develop knowledge skills and attitudes necessary to understand the depth and complexity of clinical psychiatry. Further clinical skill development is emphasized allowing students to see how each of the competencies of good clinical practice are integrated together to support optimal patient care. The Endocrine System module, part II, presents a more detailed discussion of the complexity of endocrine diseases and their treatment. The relation between endocrine systems to other organ systems is developed in lectures. In this approach, the normal processes are revisited and clinical cases are used to further develop knowledge presented earlier in the Endocrine System module, part I, provided in semester 2.
