Each student is assigned a random disease and will have to prepare a case presentation of a patient with the disease.
In each project you need to analyze, conclude and make a diagnostic plan of the disease case study about a certain disease from what you have learned.
You need to prepare a case presentation of a patient with all the necessary information (chief complaint, current medical history, symptoms, signs, past medical history, family history, or physical and laboratory diagnostic findings)
Your individual project is graded based on your thorough, detail and specific answers on 3parts:
Possible diagnoses (differential diagnosis) (50 points). After analyzing the patients case, you need to make 3 (minimum) to 4 (maximum) possible diagnoses (rank by the most possible to the least possible). You need to be specific: e.g. a diagnoses of anemia is not specific enough, you need to elaborate: which type of anemia.
Explanation of Pathophysiology of each of differential diagnoses (30 points). You need to write all of the pathophysiology
This has to be detail enough so that you can explain all the signs, symptoms, patients history and all diagnostic tests results.
Your suggestions of what extra work-up/laboratory/diagnostic tests/information needed to come to a more definite diagnosis for the patient. (20 points). On the last part, you need to give suggestions, as to what is (are) to be done to come to a more specific diagnoses for your patientscase.
