In this episode, Dr. Behringer will introduce educators to innovative and interactive ways of using ReelDx cases in a live classroom setting. He'll illustrate how patient video cases (PVCs) are a flexible tool for teaching fundamental clinical skills, such as taking a patient history and determining a differential diagnosis. By the end of the session, educators should feel comfortable applying the information learned in the session to be able to help facilitate learning in their own classrooms.
