FULL DESCRIPTION

Computer-assisted Learning in Pediatrics Program (CLIPP) is a pediatric course with a compilation of 32 virtual patient cases. The case studies guide the student from the patient meeting, differentials, and then diagnosis. The case studies are supplemented by great explanations.

One needs to register on the website in order to gain access to the material; registration is limited to a few universities. Each case study includes self-assessment material. Students are also offered additional resources to assist them in their diagnostic process.
