Ambulatory Telehealth Experience
Last Updated: April 28, 2020
Ambulatory Medicine Course Directors at The Medical College of Wisconsin designed a telehealth curriculum to engage medical students in clinical care relevant to the coronavirus pandemic and achieve key learning objectives while students remain "safer at home." Key learning objectives:
- Demonstrate independent problem-solving interventions based on patient information and preferences, up-to-date scientific evidence, and clinical judgment.
- Communicate effectively with patients and families across a broad range of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.
- Communicate effectively with colleagues within one’s profession or specialty, other health professionals, and health-related agencies.
- Maintain comprehensive, timely, and accurate medical records. Gather essential and accurate information about patients and their conditions through history-taking, laboratory data, imaging, and other tests.
- Counsel and educate patients and their families to empower them to participate in their care and enable shared decision making.
- Apply social-behavioral sciences to provision of patient care, including assessment of the impact of psychosocial and cultural influences on health, disease, care-seeking, care compliance, and barriers to and attitudes toward care.
