CoreCases for Medical Students

CoreCases for Medical Students consists of a suite of fifteen (15) selected cases from its nationally recognized “CoreCases for OB/GYN” curriculum.  These cases were designed by renowned physician educators and peer reviewed by leading experts in conjunction with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).  They provide a valuable interactive enhancement to medical school curriculums and are recommended for third and fourth year students.

CoreCases for Medical Students are online simulated patient encounters that teach, track, assess, and report on the progress of medical students.  They offer students an opportunity to make differential diagnoses, order appropriate labs and diagnostic tests, and create management plans.  The cases are targeted to fit today’s students learning styles, offering them an interactive learning experience with rich media content and formative feedback throughout the educational experience.  Students learn critical information faster, retain more information, and improve clinical reasoning and problem solving.CoreCases for Medical Students

In addition, a Journal Club is provided in each case to allow for resident-student discussions and interactions to improve knowledge. All cases also include a comprehensive Case Summary, and a Summative Assessment in the form of quiz questions.

The cases can be used in conjunction with classroom learning or as a stand-alone component that augments classroom and clinical experience. Faculty can view an individual student’s progress and group performance as a whole based on milestones established by ACGME.
