Symptom to Diagnosis® cases teach a systematic and evidence-based approach to diagnostic reasoning

In conjunction with the Reliance Foundation, the University of Chicago and a consortium of other educators from Harvard, UCSF, Tufts, University of Connecticut, Boston University, and more, we are pleased to announce 150 Symptom to Diagnosis simulated patient encounter cases for the i-Human Case Player. The new cases take a symptom-based approach to teaching students and residents the diagnostic process, realistically simulating a patient encounter by including common patient presentations and complaints.
