Solidify 5 applicable, relevant pearls on an Internal Medicine topic! We incorporate active learning strategies, such as pre-podcast quizzing, purposeful pauses as well as intentional repetition.

Challenge yourself to solve diagnostically difficult cases, and hear from experienced clinicians who will be trying to solve them with you in real time. Then, join Dr. John Hwang and Dr. Cindy Fang on the hunt for bits of wisdom — clinical pearls, reasoning techniques, rules of thumb, diagnostic schema — cognitive tools that might be helpful for your next patient!
