In recent years, problem based learning has been introduced in the curriculum to help students to develop their skills in applying their knowledge to the rational approach in clinical diagnoses.
In this new publication by Assoc Prof. Michael Wan, each case is presented with an initial symptom in the real-life scenario, and concluded with the management implemented and a summary targeting the relevant learning outcomes. It also outlines various aspects that affect the personal development of the treating physician and in a broader, public health context.
After studying through all the sections of this book, you will be able to:
- identify the relative significance of the important clinical information presented in a scenario
- ask appropriate questions in the history and perform relevant targeted physical examinations and formulate the working and differential diagnoses using your clinical reasoning skills
- generate and prioritise hypotheses using the relevant information in the scenario
- generate the causes and underlying mechanisms for common presenting symptoms and signs related to the clinical condition
