Teaching Problem Representations

In this webinar, we explore these questions: What are problem representations and what role do they play in clinical reasoning? How can this skill be taught, practiced, and evaluated? How can you fold instruction around problem representations into your overall curriculum? You’ll also see how problem representations can be taught, practiced, and assessed through NEJM Healer.

During this webinar, we:

  • Review the value of problem representations in clinical reasoning
  • Evaluate the evidence for teaching learners how to create problem representations
  • Describe the challenges that novices have in developing accurate problem representations
  • Explore how to provide feedback and formative assessment on learner problem representations
  • Show how NEJM Healer can be used to teach, practice, and assess problem representations

This webinar is led by Verity Schaye, MD, MHPE, Associate Professor of Medicine, Director of Integrated Clinical Skills, and Assistant Director of Curricular Innovation, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, Joseph J. Rencic, MD, Professor of General Internal Medicine, and Course Director of Integrated Problems and Clinical Reasoning, Boston University School of Medicine, and Raja-Elie Abdulnour, MD, Lead Editor and Director of Educational Innovation for NEJM Healer.
