INST 2030 - Emergency Medicine/Health Care Topics

This course provides an introduction to the US health care system, medical research, and medical decision making. Students will begin the course by becoming credentialled to gather research information from patients. They attend a 1.5 hour lecture/discussion session each week, and self-schedule an additional weekly three hour session in the UVa Emergency Department. While in the ED they observe the patient care and medical education process, and do case-finding and enrollment of research and survey subjects. The course is open to all, but is of particular interest to pre-professional students looking for direct patient exposure.
