Courses

  • SDM OS 740: Introduction to OMS
    The Department of OMS offers the entering class students of the 6-year MD-integrated OMS residency training program the opportunity to participate in various clinical and non-clinical activities during the first two weeks of their program. The students will be assigned to observe the functioning of the department, work with the resident and attending staff in managing the patients on the OMS services in the operating room, inpatient floors, and in the office setting. Attendance at morning and afternoon rounds and other teaching conferences is an important part of the course. There will be an opportunity to take in-house night-call with other fellow OMS residents at BMC. Day to day instruction will focus on principles and pathophysiology of head and neck surgical disease, pre-, peri-, and post-operative care of surgical patients, and evaluation and development of procedural skills in minor oral surgery in an ambulatory setting.
  • SDM OS 750: Advanced Physical Diagnosis for CAGS/MD
    Advanced principles of and procedures in the physical evaluation in preparation for matriculation into the second year of medical school. Advanced students learn to perform a physical examination, obtain a patient history and evaluate patient information. The first year resident will spend 3 weeks shadowing a clinician-mentor in the ambulatory or hospital setting. The experience is meant to introduce the student to the practice of medicine (broadly defined) and allows the student to practice targeted parts of the medical interview and physical exam. The hands-on learning that these sessions provide is a complement to the basic science courses and physical examination skills obtained in Dental school. A critical component of this education exercise should be on observation of the medical interview in action and observing aspects of the patient-doctor relationship. Limited skills such as interviewing for an HPI, taking a family history, checking vital signs, and holding an otoscope will also be covered. Topics range from how to take vital signs to enhancing awareness of cross-cultural issues. The mentor will need to help the student complete the assignment by arranging for the student to spend a little extra time with a patient each week or two. In some cases the mentor will choose to discuss with the student how s/he approaches a certain topic (for example, how to screen for domestic violence in the pediatric setting.
