We at Shade Tree are extremely excited to welcome you to clinic! Some of you have already come out and met our patients, practiced taking vitals, and drawn blood for labs. You may have also noticed that many of our patients have diseases like hypertension, diabetes, and COPD. In order to help you get the most out of your time in clinic, we are inviting all first years to join us for a series of lectures on some of these high-yield bread-and-butter topics. We will be covering basic pathophysiology, symptoms, and diagnosis, but will focus mostly on management.
These lectures will be very informal; there will be no quizzes, but there will be light snacks! (Please bring your own lunch.)
We will be discussing hypertension.
**Please note: this lecture is REQUIRED for new first-year PHEs.**
