Description: The essential purpose of the Mentored Clinical Casebook Project is to help the student integrate all of the dimensions of clinical medicine through an in-depth study of a single patient over the course of a year. Each student will have one principal mentor with whom they will work closely throughout the project. Together with the mentor, each student will explore all of the relevant aspects of a patient's illness and experience, which will involve close, ongoing contact with the patient. The product of this project will be a multi-chapter manuscript that will be a thorough case write-up and review of all aspects of the patient, from the molecular basis of the illness to the psycho-social aspects of the patient's experience. The student will be guided by both a principal mentor and a project advisor as well as any specialists needed for consultation.
