About this Textbook

Medical students often struggle when presenting new patients to the attending physicians on the ward. Case presentation is either poorly taught or not taught at all in the first two years of medical school. As a result, students are thrust into the spotlight with only sketchy ideas about how to present, prioritize, edit, and focus their case presentations. They also struggle with producing a broad differential diagnosis and defending their leading diagnosis. This text provides a comprehensive guide to give well-prepared, focused and concise presentations. It also allows students to discuss differential diagnosis, incorporate high-value care, educate their colleagues, and participate actively in the care of their patients. 

Linking in-depth discussion of the oral presentation with differential diagnosis and high value care, Presenting Your Case  is a valuable resource for medical students, clerkship directors and others who educate students on the wards and in the clinic.

Reviews

“This is a well‐written and to‐the‐point guide for medical students as they enter into their clinical training. It provides very practical advice on how to excel during these important years in their training. It is even entertaining at times, due to the numerous anecdotes and experiences the author recounts. Following the prescription for success in this guide is a sure way for medical students to stand out in their clerkship training.” (Wei Xiong, Doody's Book Reviews, August 23, 2019)
