Within assigned groups, students work together before class to author a patient case. Specific criteria and instructions for case development are provided. In class, each group pairs up with another group and each presents their case the other. Together the 2 groups work through answering a series of discussion questions provided by the instructor for each case, with each group taking responsibility for facilitating the discussion related to the case they authored. An instructor is also present to help facilitate and redirect discussion as needed.

Groups writing/typing patient cases. Students apply and analyze the information they received in the lecture component of the course, by incorporating it into a realistic and novel patient case.
