"It’s 4am, and the big test is in 8 hours. You’ve been studying for days, but you still don’t feel ready. Should you drink another cup of coffee and spend the next few hours cramming? Or should you go to sleep"

McGraw Hill announced the latest feature on Harrison's Online--the Harrison's Visual Case Challenge.
This fun, educational feature allows users to test their diagnostic skills in assessing conditions where a visual element is key to the correct diagnosis, whether an EKG, a CT scan, a plain film X-ray, a skin lesion, or a pathology slide. Many conditions in medicine appear to be have similar features, so the ability to spot key differences in visual clues is an essential part of clinical reasoning.
This new Visual Case Challenge presents two conditions in each patient case; you can choose the correct diagnosis just based on the visual clue, or request further patient data before making the diagnosis. They have also included Clinical Pearls in each case for a complete learning experience.
The Harrison's Visual Cases modules are
available under the Cases tab of AccessMedicine.
For further instructions on AccessMedicine, how to login, reactivate, and navigate the database, or any of the resources provided UMHS Students and Faculty, please check out the ‘Library Services’ section of the UMHS LMS (under 'Student Services').
