Educational Strategies to Promote Clinical Diagnostic Reasoning: The Changing Landscape

In this webinar we address the current understanding of how clinical reasoning works and how it can be taught, practiced and assessed.

NEJM Healer provides learners with the case-based, deliberate practice they need to master the clinical reasoning process and build their clinical knowledge. It also provides educators with extensive information on learner performance to help them teach and assess these essential skills.

During this discussion, we:

  • Illustrate the learning science behind how we think clinical reasoning works
  • Explore how our understanding of clinical reasoning has changed over the past 15 years since the publication of Dr. Bowen's article, Educational Strategies to Promote Clinical Diagnostic Reasoning (Bowen J. N Engl J Med 2006; 355:2217-2225)
  • Probe what we know about teaching, learning, and assessing clinical reasoning
  • Demonstrate how NEJM Healer aligns with current clinical models to support educators in developing and assessing clinical reasoning skills in their students and residents

This webinar is led by Judith L. Bowen, MD, PhD, Associate Dean for Curriculum, Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, Washington State University, and Raja-Elie Abdulnour, MD, Lead Editor and Director of Educational Innovation for NEJM Healer.
