ISP final project: adolescent medicine educational module


Project Objectives: The module serves to educate medical students and interns in completing an appropriate adolescent history and physical, and addresses many common topics practitioners will face with adolescent patients. It allows the students to work through case specific scenarios, as well as, review a typical adolescent visit filled with day-to-day clinical pearls and general practice guidelines. One module covers general health maintenance, differentiating normal vs. abnormal growth and development with emphasis on menstruation, as well as, routine screening to utilize and apply during an adolescent visit. The other module focuses on clinical descriptions and discussion of management for common adolescent issues including STIs, contraception, substance use, eating disorders, acne and obesity. The modules were created to give UCSD medical students and interns a platform of knowledge and an abundance of resources to efficiently and effectively provide care for their adolescent patients.
