This course examines the process of medical diagnosis from the perspective of Western Medicine and introduces students to the battery of medical tests available. Emphasis is placed on effective history taking and physical examination (also integral to TCM diagnosis), and a functional understanding of test results and situations in which such tests are indicated. Basic pharmacology is introduced so that students have a better understanding of the physiological effects of commonly prescribed chemical substances.
