    Description:

    This acting internship integrates clinical skills and evidence-based medicine through didactic lectures, performance of clinical procedures, hands-on clinical experiences, observation and direct interaction with faculty, individual patients, and families. Students will manage the patient using the "team approach," which involves EMTs, nurses, physicians, and students. Students are expected to evaluate patients, address their presenting complaints, initiate workups, and provide definitive therapies.

    Objectives:

    This rotation will enrich students' knowledge, help them develop history-taking ability, physical skill assessment, diagnostic and management skills, as well as help them develop a caring, compassionate and empathetic attitude in dealing with patients and their families.

    Rotation Activities:

    Suture lab, splint lab, journal club, EBM lecture, ultrasound didactic and hands-on, trauma simulation, critical care simulation, grand rounds, EMS ride-along, autopsy, spend a day with a nurse (procedures) and toxicology lectures

    Evaluation: Students will be graded based on clinical evaluations from their preceptors. Additionally, students will be required to take a series of online open book quizzes.

    Course: MDE 8714 Intro to Medical Toxicology (EM) Course Instructor(s): Matthew Cook, DO Duration: 4 weeks Location: All LVHN campuses Prerequisites: None Contact: Dawn Yenser; [email protected]; 484-884-2489 Report to: Will be provided one week prior to the start of the rotation.

    Description: Medical Toxicology is best described broadly as the field of medicine with expertise in the health effects caused by pharmaceuticals, occupational exposures and environmental agents. Toxicologists assist in the management of medication overdoses, addiction and withdrawal states, envenomations, hazardous materials exposures and workplace hazards. Toxicologists oversee the clinical operations of a Poison Center.

    Objectives: 1. Become familiar with fundamental concepts underpinning the clinical management of Toxicological patients. Participation in the diagnosis and treatment of selected acute and chronic exposures in adults and children is expected. Elements of competency include reliable history-taking, physical examination aimed at the detection of toxidromes, formulation of differential diagnoses, implementation of treatment, and development of safe disposition plans. 2. Understand the principles, methods and controversies related to limiting toxic exposures by decontamination including gastric lavage, activated charcoal administration, renal replacement therapy, ion trapping, and hyperbaric oxygen. 3. Review knowledge of basic kinetic principles of drug absorption, redistribution, metabolism, and elimination. 4. Study poisoning epidemiology specifically within populations ‘at risk’ such as toddlers, the elderly, pregnant or nursing women, migrants and immigrants. 5. Complete case studies from approximately 20 classes of drugs and poisons commonly encountered in clinical practice. Emphasis will be placed on assessing severity and initiating timely, appropriate treatment. 6. Learn guiding principles of the management of acute intoxication in the Emergency Department.
