Emergency Medicine monthly Clinical Cases
At the end of each block in the first half of the year you are required to present an interesting emergency department case. You will make this presentation to a senior staff member and your fellow students.
This should consist of a 10 minute didactic PowerPoint presentation.
The basic format should be
1) History and physical (chronological order including pertinent positives and negatives)
2) Differential diagnosis (Thoughtful but complete)
3) Thought process
4) Diagnosis and discussion
5) Include a slide describing a study that exemplifies one of your key points
6) The last slide should be – 3-5 key points to make us all better practitioners.
The presentation will be in the last weeks of the rotation.
In order to let all students present you must keep it under 10 minutes.
If you have questions please discuss with the rotation supervisor.
