Session Overview

PA curricula vary by class year and across institutions, but it is always critical to introduce clinical reasoning early in your program. Figuring out when and how to fold in clinical reasoning instruction and assessment can be difficult given the challenges of ensuring deliberate practice for learners. 
 
NEJM Healer, a new screen-based clinical reasoning simulator from the publishers of the New England Journal of Medicine, provides focused, repetitive clinical practice with objective and targeted feedback. NEJM Healer can assist PA educators in preparing students for real clinical experiences and, ultimately, achieving better patient outcomes as independent professionals.
 
After this webinar, attendees will have a better understanding of:
  1. Strategies for using cases to teach clinical reasoning in both traditional lecture and flipped classroom environments
  2. Using virtual patient cases as formative and summative assessments to design remediation in clinical reasoning for individual students
  3. How specifically to embed clinical reasoning education and deliberate practice in the didactic and clinical phases of your curriculum
  4.  NEJM Healer which is founded on deliberate practice and cognitive science theories of clinical reasoning as a valuable tool for your program in the systematic teaching and assessment of clinical reasoning

In this workshop, we will discuss:

  • Methods for incorporating clinical reasoning instruction and assessment across your pre-clinical curriculum
  • Reinforcing and assessing diagnostic reasoning with a virtual clerkship tool
  • Ways to Streamline clinical reasoning assessment for your program in a cost-effective, standardized, objective manner with NEJM Healer
  • NEJM Healer features and functionality with a live demo
