The Seminars in Medicine series addresses a variety of topics considered essential for every practicing physician to know, yet focuses on areas which traditionally do not fit into the core curriculum of any single required third-year clerkship. Introductory clinical topics are covered in the first part of the year, while more sophisticated topics are addressed later. In addition to clinical material, Seminars in Medicine also provides a forum for the discussion of ethical, legal, social, and economic issues in medicine.
Seminars in Medicine are designed to be practical, relevant, problem-oriented,
and clearly aimed at the third year students. These sessions are designed
to be uniquely different from material covered in the preclinical years,
and they do not assume significant prior clinical experience. Seminars
are intended to be interactive, and as often as possible, the presentations
are case-based, using actual clinical material. Panel presentations,
live patients, small groups, traditional lectures, videotape, and other
formats are also used.
