Curriculum

Beginning to End

Module Director: Irina Overman, M.D.

Module Description: The Beginning to End module will focus on the endocrine, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems under normal and abnormal conditions. The module also advances the concepts of genetics, nutrition, hematology, and human development. Throughout the module, the learner will solve increasingly complex clinical case problems that exemplify core pathophysiologic concepts and make evidence-based decisions about diagnosis and treatment. Presentation and diagnosis of diseases involving all ages will be investigated.
