Uses case-based teaching to develop higher-level medical thinking, based on James P. Keating’s concept of pediatric diagnostic medicine.
Teaches how to think about a patient’s symptoms, dissect the issues, think backwards, and arrive at the correct diagnosis.
Presents notable clinical cases starting with the presenting symptoms and then discussing vital signs, patient and family history, lab results, consults, differential diagnoses, and the ultimate diagnosis, finishing each case with teaching points.
Includes additional relevant information on each case, such as why one diagnosis was chosen over another, or why certain tests were not run.
