CoreCases for Internal MedicineConsistent education, objective assessment, ongoing tracking of core competencies and milestones, and reporting on an individual resident’s proficiency are challenges for all Program Directors.  With the shifting landscape for care and increasing demands on faculty and staff, a more efficient and effective method for educating residents and assessing milestones is needed.

CoreCases for Internal Medicine consists of a full curriculum of 30 cases that are online simulated patient encounters that assess the competencies and milestones required for demonstrating resident proficiency at each stage of their learning process.  Residents learn critical information faster, retain more information, and improve clinical reasoning and problem solving.  Cases can be assigned based on PGY level, topic area, or complexity.  This curriculum can be used to supplement educational activities in a specific rotation, to replace lectures, and engage in interactive discussions. It includes familiar disease states as well as ones that are difficult for programs to cover.
