The department provides for the education of students, physicians, and the public in the field of biomedical knowledge. The department provides clinical education, fosters research, and through its clinical services provides patient care ranging from primary to subspeciality care. The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston was created by the UT System Board of Regents and supported by the Texas Legislature in 1972. Located in the world-renowned Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas, the school is primarily a graduate education university focusing on the health sciences. The Department of Internal Medicine offers clinical education programs in the following areas: cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general internal medicine, hematology, infectious diseases, medical genetics, oncology, pulmonary and critical care medicine,renal diseases and hypertension, rheumatology and clinical immunogenetics.
Traditionally, Grand Rounds consist of presenting the medical problems and treatment of a particular patient to an audience consisting of doctors, residents, and medical students. The Grand Rounds in this collection are like a lecture series with a range of medical-related topics from the history of medicine to current treatments and knowledge about specific diseases.
Also included in this collection are tapes of the Clinicopathologic Conference (CPC) series. CPC is the well established abbreviation for Clinicopathological Conference. However, it also can stand for the process of clinicopathological correlation. The CPC conference is a time-honored interdepartmental and interdisciplinary approach in which a patient’s clinical findings and course are presented, followed by a discussion usually focused on the differential diagnosis by a knowledgeable clinician, followed by the presentation of the pathological findings by a pathologist, culminating in a general discussion. The goal is to provide increased understanding of diseases by correlation of clinical and pathological findings.
