  • Ask probing questions to reveal information that will lead to accurate patient diagnosis
  • Identify relevant clinical tests that will accurately inform the clinical decision
  • Understand the effect of pre-analytic factors in obtaining accurate test results
  • Identify false or misleading information that can interfere with accurate testing and diagnosis
  • Improve skills in providing clinical consultation for improved patient care


In this challenging case study series, participants work together to discover, through skillful questioning and analysis, the accurate diagnosis and treatment for real-life patient scenarios. The case study is revealed and discussed over a 5-day period.
