PHA496

Culminating project that promotes the lifelong learning process through completion of a written research paper that integrates asking appropriate clinical questions, searching for relevant answers, and interjecting one's own medical opinion. PICO (Patient population, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome) format is used to develop evidence-based medicine queries that require literature searches to provide an answer. Project results in a 15-page document written for potential publication in physician assistant journals. 1 Credit (1 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): PHA409 and PHA422. (Cultural Diversity, Writing Enriched)
