Medical Knowledge is one of the six core competencies assessed as part of the ABMS Program for Maintenance of Certification (ABMS MOC®). Physicians must demonstrate knowledge about established and evolving biomedical, clinical, and cognate sciences as well as their application to patient care.
The term “medically unexplained symptoms” (MUS) refers to symptoms that are not adequately explained by the presence of organic disease or pathology, even after an appropriate work-up. Patients with MUS are in emotional distress, and caring for them is difficult or impossible if clinicians ignore or fail to respond to that distress. In this module, we demonstrate how to assist patients with MUS.
