After a few weeks of clinical practice, medical students and residents realize that patients are often different from the classic disease descriptions in the textbooks. One experienced physician summarized this by saying: "his asthma did not read the book." How to bridge this gap between theory and practice? Our answer was to create this free case-based curriculum of clinical medicine. ClinicalCases.org was featured in the British Medical Journal and Medscape.com, and was referenced several times in the medical education literature. The project is hyperlinked in the websites of 29 medical schools in the U.S., Canada, South America, Europe and Asia.
This case-based curriculum was started by physicians at Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University for the purpose of medical education. The published reports do not follow real cases. Health professionals are invited to submit cases of educational value without HIPAA identifiers through an online form.
