Case Studies

The best way to learn medicine is to think through actual Real-Life cases.

The vast and ever-expanding medical knowledge is now at your fingertips. Mediums such as Medscape and Uptodate have refined this extensive knowledge and made it available and applicable to everyday medical practice. As a result, the current medical education system is now considered obsolete.

The current teaching method in medicine is no different than it was over 100 years ago with memorization of medical knowledge as its center point. Now that this knowledge is readily available, the current medical education system needs to become entirely clinical by focusing on teaching problem-solving skills instead of memorization.

Case studies will allow students to develop problem-solving skills. No answers are provided for these cases. As a result, students have to work together or by themselves to evaluate each presentation’s nuances and there is enough information provided in order to solve each case using online resources.
