What kinds of cases are eligible?

Essentially, all cases are eligible so long as they aid you in demonstrating the use, potential use, and/or difficulty of using clinical evidence in the diagnosis and/or management of a patient. 

Cases can be from any medical speciality or setting.

Cases can be a usual or an unusual case or a condition encountered in practice.

For example, cases can include:

  • Unique or poorly understood conditions or presentations for which there is some evidence to support diagnoses and/or management

  • Well understood conditions or presentations for which there is new evidence to support diagnoses and/or management

  • Conditions or presentations for which there is conflicting or difficult to apply evidence to support diagnoses and/or management

Cases need to be real, and will most likely be those that your encountered in a clinical clerkship within the Waterloo-Wellington region (GRH, SMGH, CMH, Homewood, etc).
