When and How to Immerse Clinical Reasoning Into Your PA Curriculum

PA curricula vary by class year and across institutions, but it is always critical to introduce clinical reasoning early in your program. Figuring out when and how to fold in clinical reasoning instruction and assessment can be difficult given the challenges of ensuring deliberate practice for learners. NEJM Healer provides focused, repetitive clinical practice with objective and targeted feedback, and can assist PA educators in preparing students for real clinical experiences and, ultimately, achieving better patient outcomes as independent professionals.

In this webinar, we discuss:

  • Strategies for using cases to teach clinical reasoning in both traditional lecture and flipped classroom environments
  • Using virtual patient cases as formative and summative assessments to design remediation in clinical reasoning for individual students
  • How specifically to embed clinical reasoning education and deliberate practice in the didactic and clinical phases of your curriculum
  • NEJM Healer which is founded on deliberate practice and cognitive science theories of clinical reasoning as a valuable tool for your program in the systematic teaching and assessment of clinical reasoning

The webinar is led by Anthony Miller, PA-C, Med, Distinguished Professor and former Director, Division of Physician Assistant Studies at Shenandoah University, and Raja-Elie Abdulnour, MD, Lead Editor and Director of Educational Innovation for NEJM Healer.
