Welcome to the Department of molecular and clinical medicine. In particular, research and education on cardiovascular diseases, obesity, diabetes and metabolism is ongoing.
Our mission is, through research, to improve the health and care that our society provides. In this department, we strive to create an excellent, translational research environment at a very high international level. We work closely with healthcare providers, the pharmaceutical industry and Chalmers University of technology and we are involved in several important international collaborations and research.
Clinical Medicine Syllabus I
Providing medical students with such basic knowledge and practical training in the diagnosis and treatment of respiratory, circulatory and geriatric diseases and emergency care that can form the basis for further training in medical studies.
The teaching provides basic clinical skills in interviewing, conducting physical examinations and assessing exam results and writing journals; on the one hand, it aims to impart basic theoretical knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of internal diseases and diseases of old age. The course also aims to develop attitudes and attitudes towards patients and other staff.
Objectives of the course
At the end of classes, the student must:
- be able to independently investigate, evaluate and treat life-threatening disorders.
- identify patients with acute and chronic respiratory problems, diagnose underlying diseases and start treatment.
- identify patients with acute and chronic circulatory disorders, diagnose underlying conditions and initiate treatment.
- identify patients with acute disorders of consciousness, diagnose underlying diseases and begin treatment.
- explain and analyse how normal ageing and common age-related diseases affect daily life and plan treatment and rehabilitation.
- report on the examination and treatment of patients with asthma and allergic diseases.
- to study and evaluate unreliable cognitive functions.
- take into account risk factors and prevent allergic, respiratory, cardiovascular and age-related diseases.
- report on pathophysiology in allergic, respiratory, cardiovascular and age-related diseases.
- take into account basic scientific knowledge that enables an understanding of pathophysiology, clinical signs and treatment in diseases related to haemostasis, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Particular emphasis will be placed on the background of emergency care for diseases of these organs, as well as on how aging affects the functioning of these organs in normal and pathological conditions.
- be able to independently deal with the history and carry out the full status and
summarize it in the journal entry.
- demonstrate empathy, teamwork and collaboration with other occupational groups in health care.
