Program Description

Young physicians present interesting cases to a multidisciplinary panel to demonstrate a collaborative team approach to diagnosing and managing challenging cases. Enhance your medical knowledge, and diagnostic and management skills as you work through the following case studies with a team of physician presenters and master clinicians:

CASE 1. 68-year-old female with remote history of breast cancer presented with cough and fevers; treated for community-acquired pneumonia. 
CASE 2. 33-year-old female with intermittent atypical chest pain, left-sided, non-pleuritic, non-exertional, five episodes in the past five months. 
CASE 3. 83-year-old female with history of mild COPD, prior COVID infection, and other conditions presents for evaluation for shortness of breath on exertion for the past 10 months. 
CASE 4. 17-year-old female, previously healthy, presents with shortness of breath that started six weeks prior to admission; she developed a dry cough three weeks prior to admission, and developed a low-grade fever, headaches, and worsening dyspnea a week prior to admission.
