Clinical Reasoning Ia (PC12041)
This is a core course for all first-year students. It is mainly lecture-based and provides foundational information for the entire sequence of clinical reasoning courses. The purpose of this course is to develop an appreciation and skill set for clinical and critical thinking, which can be applied to problem solving and ethical decision making. The course includes a group project which involves working with a volunteer “personal patient” who provides real life health and ocular conditions. One grade ( letter grade) will be issued at the end of the spring semester. A criterion for grading has been established if a student does not complete the two semesters.
