Friday, February 3, 2023

12:00 PM EST 

Session Overview

Join us for a free webinar and learn how to use realistic patient cases to teach, practice, and assess a wide range of clinical reasoning skills.
In this webinar, we will:
  • Review the value of a case-based approach to clinical reasoning education and the need for assessment during deliberate practice to develop these skills.
  • Show how NEJM Healer cases are constructed to model the patient encounter and foster the key skills involved in clinical reasoning, including:
    • Acquiring data
    • Creating a problem representation
    • Building a differential
    • Activating illness scripts
    • Narrowing in on a most likely diagnosis
    • Developing a diagnostic and management plan
  • Demonstrate how NEJM Healer offers a turnkey solution in the UME and GME curricula by:
    • Providing rich supporting materials (clinical reasoning overviews, diagnostic schemas, and illness scripts)
    • Addressing core skills, competencies, and EPAs with a wide variety of cases at varying levels of difficulty
    • Enabling a flexible approach that can be deployed to meet the needs of different individual programs (e.g., in class or asynchronously, for deliberate practice or for assessment, etc.)
    • Fitting into key inflection points to both assess and strengthen clinical reasoning skills (in transition to clerkship, transitioning between clinical rotation, and in transition to residency, etc.)
    • Exploring the extensive feedback and assessment data generated by each student case encounter.
