MedU Case Studies

Dana is pleased to announce the addition of MedU Case Studies, online educational tools that provide virtual patients for students in medical clerkships. Dana has obtained WISE-MD (Web Initiative for Surgical Education), a set of eleven surgery modules, and CLIPP (Computer Assisted Learning in Pediatrics Program), a set of 31 patient cases.

WISE-MD surgery modules consists of video presentations concerning medical fundamentals of the condition followed by patient-doctor interactions involving patient history, physical exam, laboratory studies, imaging studies, decision making, surgery, and post operative care.

CLIPP pediatric case studies present patient scenarios and ask questions to test student’s knowledge, related to diagnosis and treatment of conditions, in a step by step manner. After users submit answers to the questions results and comments are provided with references.
