Electronic Case-Based Curriculum
Review at PacMed Clinics
The Curriculum will consist of a list of vital topics
chosen by the Primary Care residents.
One case per week will be prepared with the goal of presenting
at least one important lesson ("a pearl a day").
The cases will be prepared by one of nine Primary Care
residents or thirteen attendings on a rotating schedule. Residents will
be assigned based upon their clinic block schedule so that they will have
time to select and present the case. The schedule will be made up far
in advance to allow for planning, vacations etc.
The presentations should be concise but provide enough
detail to demonstrate the clinical problem. Several thought/discussion-provoking
questions and one or two references for further reading will accompany
each case scenario.
The cases will be distributed with discussion and references
Attending-resident pairs may choose to discuss the case
at the end of their clinic session during chart sign-out.
Articles will be photocopied weekly by Swedish library
staff and disseminated to the two clinic sites by mail, or more often
by email attachment.
