Group Challenge

    This activity will center on an older, healthy patient who has multiple spots on his head >4 cm in diameter that do not appear to be healing. Each member of the group will be assigned a different element of the diagnostic and prognostic process.

  • Ms. LaDue: A 50-year-old woman with a recurrent small skin lesion

    Participants will interact with the standardized patient and interview her about the new lesion on her back. Questions will be centered around the steps in patient assessment, management, and opportunities for multidisciplinary consultation.
