Requirements: For Weeks 3 and 7 of the course you will be presenting your own case from clinical. The case should … clear, organized, and meet the following guidelines:]

Initial Case Presentation:

The initial presentation should include BOTH the subjective and objective data on the patient organized as you would organize them in a SOAP (CC, HPI – in paragraph format (no OLDCART); ROS, PE findings, three (3) differential diagnoses with rationale and in-text citation of scholarly source(s) used as support and Two (2) questions for your peers to address. **Do not put the diagnosis or plan in initial post.

WEEK 3: The case should be pediatric (a patient age 17 years or younger). By now, with two full courses and almost all of this course completed you should have seen a pediatric patient at some time. 

WEEK 3 specific guidelines: The case must not be something overly simple. The list of things that should not … covered include sore throat, URI, UTI, ear infection, or contact dermatitis (poison ivy). You need to present a case that intrigued you or presents new content in a different light. *One of the above diagnosis can be presented if the findings were unusual and you clear such case with your course faculty prior to posting (at least 2 days before posting). In the pediatric case you must also include in the objective data growth chart percentiles for height, weight, and BMI, and tanner staging. A patient you saw both for initial complaint and follow-up would be ideal, but not required.
