Description of Activities
MSA students (40) will be divided into five PBL groups consisting of 8 students and two OMS II facilitators. Five PBL cases have been selected by the MSA personnel that contain a commonchief complaint. The patient’s subjective and objective data however, vary between the five cases. All cases have a patient’s history and physical data followed by a Complete Blood Count,Lab Chemistry values, and Urine test results. Additional tests may include an ECG, X-rays or MRI. All cases are framed from the primary care perspective.
Each PBL group will be given one of five different cases with a common chief complaint. The OMS II facilitator will utilize standard PBL discovery and interactive procedures. PBL groups will have four days to determine the diagnosis and to explore the basic medical sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, etc.) associated with the case. They will have two hours on the last day of the week to prepare a grand rounds type presentation of the case, which will be delivered during the graduation program. Students will use the library resources (software, models and textbooks) to prepare their PowerPoint presentation for graduation.
The LECOM Bradenton cafeteria will provide the students with a box lunch and snacks. Students may bring their own lunch and snacks, which are to be stored in a designated MSA section in the cafeteria. No food or drink is allowed in rooms outside of the cafeteria. Students are free to have their lunch out on the patio tables.
During the second week of the program, MSA students will be divided into 2 groups. Groups will be assigned a morning session or afternoon session during which time they will participate in a variety of health related activities. Lunch will be on your own.
