COMSEP Clinical Cases

What is C3?

The Curriculum Taskforce has developed the C3 COMSEP Clinical Cases and an accompanying instructor guide. Some clerkship directors and educators use these problem sets to teach factual information and clinical reasoning. Others use these as teaching resources for residents and faculty who may be out of their comfort zone.

The C3 user’s guide is peer-reviewed and published as a password-protected document on the COMSEP website.

The C3 guides are written to address the learning objectives of junior medical students. The format of each user’s guide follows a template that includes definition of terms, review of important concepts, historical points, physical exam findings, clinical reasoning questions, and supplemental learning activities to not only provide answers but to supplement discussion for each case.

These cases correlate with the Third Year Curriculum and its goals and objectives.
