Integrative Cases for Preclinical Medical Students: Connecting Clinical, Basic Science, and Public Health Approaches

Description

This article describes "Integrative Cases," 2-day long, learner-driven, experiential learning activities at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health that blend clinical, basic science, and public health approaches in a single experience. Examples of Integrative Cases are provided, and evaluation results are reviewed. This article is part of the October, 2011 Supplement to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, "Patients and Populations: Public Health in Medical Education." The supplement is based on the September 2010 conference of the same name that drew more than 190 medical and public health educators and public health practitioners from the U.S. and Canada. Publication of the Supplement was supported by the cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
