Milewicz, Dianna. One semester hour. Fall, Spring, and Summer, annually. Grading System: Pass or Fail. Prerequisite: MD/PhD students only; consent of instructor (Pass/Fail only)

The seminar will use selected topics in molecular medicine as a vehicle to introduce students to basic ideas of biomedical research, to the skills involved in evaluating the research literature and presenting data, and to the interplay between the research laboratory and the problems of clinical medicine. Students will be expected to conduct literature reviews, make oral presentations of research papers, and participate in the discussions of each topic. The course is offered in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semester, and MD/PhD students are required to register for the course throughout their tenure in the Program except during the third and fourth years of Medical School when schedules for clinical rotations conflict with the weekly seminar.
