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.

If you have any questions, or would like to RSVP to attend, please contact Shelly Mintz or Trisha Macrae.
