The Foundations series from ReelDx provide handpicked patient cases to facilitate a student’s learning in a particular field of medicine. They are meant to represent some of the most common conditions and diseases that a provider may encounter in relation to a particular organ system. Both adult and pediatric cases have been provided. By the end of the course, students will have a basic understanding of some common conditions in a particular organ system and how they are diagnosed and treated appropriately.

Learning objectives

Foundations Objectives:

  1. FUNDAMENTAL LITERACIES - Be able to identify, analyze, and describe materials presented using media and resources at your disposal.
  2. CRITICAL THINKING - Be able to synthesize knowledge via comprehensive exploration of foundational medical, social, and cultural aspects of care.
  3. SELF-ASSESSMENT: Learn to identify knowledge gaps and develop strategies to address any deficiencies.

Neurology Learning Outcomes:

  1. Demonstrate competency in obtaining and interpreting a comprehensive neurological patient history and physical examination.
  2. Recognize abnormal findings during patient interview and physical exam, and use these observations in localizing neurological systems that may be affected. Be able to formulate comprehensive differential diagnoses based on patient history, vital signs, and physical exam findings.
  3. Develop efficiencies in proposing initial evaluation and management strategies for patients with common neurological disorders.
  4. Identify indications from information obtained from routine neurological tests such as lumbar puncture, electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), computerized tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  5. Describe treatments for common neurological diseases, and understand the risks involved in the administration of such treatments.
