"Case-Based Learning - Session 1"

Peter Rubenstein, PhD
   - Strand Director
   - Professor of Biochemistry, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics

SUMR students are exposed to clinical scenarios and asked to apply basic science concepts to these issues, highlighting the integration of scientific investigation and clinical problems. Students meet in a small group format that fosters inquisitiveness and independent thinking. The group works with a faculty preceptor to develop learning issues based on clinical case scenarios. The facilitator helps students effectively link basic science observations with medical problems. SUMR students are encouraged to bring basic science issues into these sessions and use the primary literature as reference material.
