Patient Notes

Patient Notes is an interactive, inter-professional course that engages students in music listening sessions to teach students active listening skills. Through various forms of music, students will learn how to actively listen for specific details to gain insight on meaning, become comfortable with ambiguity and interpretation, and develop pattern recognition skills to quickly recognize deviation. Students will also write Patient Notes in a SOAP format for music pieces. Taught jointly by UTHSCSA faculty and professional musicians, this strategy of applying specific listening skills for music will be analogous to how students can apply listening skills clinically. Specifically, this course aims to improve interview and history-taking skills, physical exam skills that involve auscultation, and note-writing skills. This is also an opportunity for students to practice problem solving with other healthcare professionals. This is a pilot course, which will be offered in the future as a year-long longitudinal elective.
