Fulminant idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a rare presentation of idiopathic intracranial hypertension in which visual decline occurs within 4 weeks of initial symptom presentation. Idiopathic intracranial hypertension usually presents with headaches, visual disturbances, and in women who are overweight. We present a case of idiopathic intra...
Empathy is the basis of a patient-physician relationship; however, this is being lost by students throughout medical training. Immersive virtual reality that allows individuals to viscerally experience anything from another person’s point of view has the potential to reverse the erosion of empathy and improve clinical practices.
Compassionate end-of-life care matters deeply for patients and their caregivers, but studies continue to demonstrate ways in which physicians fall short. Despite specific training during medical school, many patients report lack of empathy in their providers with respect to end-of-life conversations. This is likely because empathy is simply hard to...
The following fictional case is intended as a learning tool within the Pathology Competencies for Medical Education (PCME), a set of national standards for teaching pathology. These are divided into three basic competencies: Disease Mechanisms and Processes, Organ System Pathology, and Diagnostic Medicine and Therapeutic Pathology. For additional i...
http://www.scientificoajournals.org/pdf/JMET.1058.pdf Introduction: The decline in ophthalmology pre-clinical education is a concern, as it is essential for diagnoses of ocular emergencies and systemic diseases. Compounding this is the global pandemic which has made specialty skills-based training more challenging. Objective: To combat these issu...
Given the growing prevalence of Alzheimer's disease (AD), we assessed the impact of virtually embodying someone with progressive AD. This pilot explored students' understanding of individuals' needs with dementia, as well as, the efficacy of virtual reality (VR) as a curricular tool. Second-year medical students (n = 150) completed a pre-survey, Em...
Drawing as a pedagogical tool in anatomy has been shown to be effective at increasing knowledge and engaging students. Therefore, a three-dimensional drawing activity of the dural venous sinuses was implemented to increase knowledge of the structures and improve understanding of their spatial orientation and drainage. Students were given a pre-test...
Rhinitis has been found to have profound direct and indirect negative effects on business including costs attributed to loss of productivity and the amount of over the counter medications consumed. Several other studies have examined the immune system’s response in immunocompromised patients by using nasal cytology. This study focused on nasal cyto...
