CaseNetwork Announces the Release of a New Curriculum for Resident Education, “CoreCases for Internal Medicine” at AIMW

Consistent education, objective tracking, assessment and reporting of individual resident programs aligned with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) Core Competencies and Milestones is a problem for all program directors.

With the changes in work hours for residents, the shifting landscape for care and increasing demands on faculty and staff, a more time-efficient and cost-effective method for educating residents and assessing competency is needed. CoreCases addresses that need and improves the educational experience for all internal medicine residents while supporting the current program curriculum.

To advance education and training, CaseNetwork will release “CoreCases for Internal Medicine” at the Academic Internal Medicine Week (AIMW) in Baltimore, MD on March 19-22, 2017, a curriculum that will measure and improve a resident’s proficiency in the key knowledge and skills required for advancement during their training.

CaseNetwork also introduced “CoreCases for Ob-Gyn,” in 2015 at the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology/CREOG meeting, and released “CoreCases for Family Medicine” at the 2016 American Academy of Family Physicians conference.

With the changes in work hours for residents, the shifting landscape for care and increasing demands on faculty and staff, a more time-efficient and cost-effective method for educating residents and assessing competency is needed. CoreCases addresses that need and improves the educational experience for all internal medicine residents while supporting the current program curriculum.

“CoreCases for Internal Medicine” consists of 30 simulated patient encounters that cover all aspects of Internal medicine and enable specific and immediate training support and remediation. The program can be assigned by rotation and resident year and allows residency programs to transport traditional lecture-based learning into a more interactive and engaging process for teaching and learning.

“CaseNetwork is excited to provide case-based, competency-focused education that helps residents learn faster, more efficiently and more conveniently. Resident directors can now track the progress of residents and more accurately assess their readiness for promotion and independent practice,” says Jeffrey Levy, MD, Founder and CEO of CaseNetwork. CoreCases is the first solution that tracks competencies and directly maps milestones to educational activities.”
