CoreCases Curriculum - The Way Today's Residents Like to Learn

CoreCases for Family Medicine is an online, clinically relevant curriculum that includes assessments and is self-paced so that residents can do it on their own. But, it is also standardized so that it adds consistency and objectivity to supplement the individual rotation experience of each resident.

" Our original motivation in bringing CoreCases to our program stemmed from the fact that we are a new program and needed an organized structure for our didactics. When I saw CoreCases, I was very impressed with the depth and breadth of information provided, and the fact that it included ongoing documentation of what the trainees are doing along with a report of their strengths and weaknesses. I also like that the curriculum provides information about what many people call "soft skills" in those domains such as professionalism and communication skills that are somewhat subjective and are very hard to assess without a tool like CoreCases."
