Clinical Case Reviews - Mission Bay


This week we welcome Oren Rosenberg, MD, PhD from the Department of Infectious Disease.

When: Monday, August 22, 6:00-7:30pm
Location: Byers Hall Room 209, Mission Bay
Light supper provided.

The MSTP Clinical Case Review is a vehicle for PhD-phase MSTPs to practice generating differential diagnoses, presenting orally, and discussing next steps for treatment and prognosis--skills which we think are essential for success in clerkships but perhaps neglected during the research years. Every other week, we invite a practicing physician to present a case they encountered or a current MSTP student to present a case from a medical journal. Over dinner, we simulate a patient interview, physical examination, and labs, all while generating a differential diagnosis and discussing how to narrow it through appropriate questions, exams, and tests.
