This course introduces students to the profession of audiology and provides an overview of auditory function and the basic principles of audiologic assessment. The course includes descriptions of the physical and psychological properties of sound and the basic anatomy and physiology of the auditory system. It additionally explains basic diagnostic and screening procedures of the auditory mechanism which aid students to recognize common auditory (and related) disorders and facilitate their management. Students also conduct a field project to interview hearing-impaired adults and audiology specialists.
This course introduces students to developmental speech and language disorders in children, examining the phonological, syntactic, semantic and pragmatic aspects of these disorders including Specific Language Impairment, cerebral palsy, split palate, Down syndrome and autism. It provides students with knowledge and skills required to assess and remediate language impairments in children from the pre-linguistic level through preschool years and with an understanding of their interaction with other developmental milestones. Students are instructed in understanding language impairment, assessment, and intervention, collecting and analyzing language samples, and the skills required to assess emerging diagnostic and treatment practices in this area.
This course covers pediatric concepts that are essential for all medical students. The curriculum is modeled after the COMSEP and NBME examination (see Educational Resources). In addition, students are required to complement this clinical training with self-learning endeavors (e.g., using educational resources listed later). Self-learning is the only way to ensure acquisition of all core pediatric foundations listed in this booklet and elsewhere. By the end of the rotations, students will gain clinical (bedside) experience, in addition to didactic learning. They are expected to become competent in these six domains: History taking, Physical examination, Problem list, Differential diagnosis, Investigation, and Management (especially of common/ important conditions).
This course allows students to act as sub-interns in the hospital by being an integral part of the hospital team, provide them with autonomy and independence while retaining reasonable didactic teaching. There are various components for this course including hospital attachment, afternoon teaching sessions and on-calls. Assessment will be done throughout the course based on attendance, mini-clinical evaluation exercise (Mini-ClEx), hospital evaluation, case presentation and documentation. At the end of the rotation students have clinical examination and NBME assessments. Each student will have a logbook to record attendance, participation in sessions, and practical procedures performed which must be signed by the attending tutor.
