Case Conferences

Prepare for each case conference in advance by reading the case(s) and any background reading that you feel is necessary to help you create a differential diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. For each case, the authors list “highly recommended” literature, copies of which may be given to you at the beginning of the clerkship. It is expected that you will read the highly recommended literature.

Each conference will be led by a faculty member who is familiar with the subject area, but not necessarily expert. The format is a group discussion.
