Teaches the paramedic student to integrate scene and patient assessment findings with knowledge of epidemiology and pathophysiology to form a field impression. Uses a structured and organized assessment process that draws on knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, life span development, and changes that occur to the human body with time. Using this process students learn to develop a list of differential diagnoses through clinical reasoning and modify the assessment as necessary to formulate a treatment plan for their patients.
