Congratulations to Dr. Janna Raphelson for having her mystery case featured on both the Clinical Problem Solvers podcast as well as the Human Diagnosis Project application! Check out her episode below!
Listen to our VERY OWN clinical problem solvers, Dr. Lizzy Hastie, MS4 Rima Deshpande and hospital medicine faculty Dr. Anand Jagannath solve a case on air!!
This afternoon at Jacobs, we continued to explore our longitudinal clinical reasoning curriculum by doing a deep dive into the concept of the diagnostic schema! As a reminder, the diagnostic schema is a conceptual approach to specific symptoms or diseases that is meant to organize the way we approach a differential diagnosis. Importantly, the schema does not need to be entirely comprehensive, but is built such that you can rationally approach a disease category and use it to guide work-up and management. As an example, the team discussed their different approaches to post-prandial pain!
Check out today’s HumanDx case by our very own Dan Corbally (R2)!!!
As part of our Owen (HIV) AM report series, CMR Janet Ma walked us through a case of a young woman with AIDS presenting with a unilateral leg rash. Our AMAZING senior residents (R2s Mary Brooks, Sophie Cannon, Ashley Scanlon and Cynthia Hsu) led the group in sharing their diagnostic schema for rash in an immunocompromised patient. The ultimate diagnosis was multidermatomal zoster! Dr. Anand Jagannath (VA Hospitalist) and Dr. Lalo Cachay (Owen/ID attending) shared their approach and expertise.
