Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has historically utilized case-based learning for core clerkship students.  Recently, an interdisciplinary team reconceptualized the learning modality and created The Sciences and Art of Medicine Integrated (SAMI), an undifferentiated patient case-based course that runs in parallel to core clinical rotations.  SAMI walks students through the discovery of a patient case through a simulated encounter and uses specifically designed tools to promote integration of basic, clinic, and health system sciences.  These tools provide the opportunity for learners to consider the impact of SDH on the development, treatment, and care delivery for individual patients.

During this webinar we discussed:

  • The development of an undifferentiated patient case-based course
  • Tools developed to help learners provide targeted treatments and consider the complex nature of care delivery, with a focus on the incorporation of SDH
  • Lessons learned, changes implemented, and future directions of the curriculum
