As LSU School of Medicine students, we sought to maximize our access to the high-quality facilities of the LSU HSC Learning Center. The Center allows us to practice our knowledge of disease presentation in a simulated clinical environment. The Case Simulations Group (CSG) began out of this desire to utilize the Learning Center facilities beyond what is scheduled in our M.D. curriculum. In CSG, activities are structured in a collaborative, team-based learning format. Guided by the clinical faculty of LSU, we create multiple clinical cases correlated with our curriculum, complete with vignettes, patient data, and relevant laboratory studies. Participants in each session collect and analyze this data to discover diagnoses, in a timed format. The valuable experiences gained already from CSG are multifaceted: in addition to the excellent practice participants gain in efficiently gathering patient data, we as Session facilitators are able to consider case data relevant to a particular etiology, allowing us to learn our own material to a very high degree.
