CaseNetwork expands its CoreCases product line by launching CoreCases for Family Medicine. The new online curriculum consists of 36 primary care cases, or “simulated patient encounters.” Cases can be assigned based on PGY level, topic area or complexity. “CoreCases for Family Medicine provides a decision-oriented educational interface where residents can learn critical information, make a correct diagnosis and prescribe proper treatments. The curriculum includes familiar disease states and conditions as well as ones that are difficult for programs to cover,” explains Brian McDonough, MD, Chief Medical Officer of CaseNetwork.
CoreCases for Family Medicine contains a full complement of rich multi-media, including videos, diagrams, clinical images and medical illustrations to engage and encourage participation from all residents. Supplemental articles and resources are incorporated into each case making further study easy and efficient.
“CaseNetwork has had so much success with its CoreCases for Ob/Gyn that we decided to create a new family medicine curriculum that builds upon our educational techniques, advanced technology, and extensive experience. We are now able to provide resident directors with objective and consistent tracking, assessments and reporting of competencies and milestones required to demonstrate resident proficiency at each stage of their learning process,” says Jeffrey Levy, MD, Founder and CEO of CaseNetwork. “The reporting tool allows for program directors to identify residents’ weak areas so early and focused remediation can be applied.”
