What's Your Diagnosis? - Continuing Medical Education

This is an online CME activity that offers you the opportunity to receive AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Upon successful completion of What's Your Diagnosis?® cases, your CME certificate will be delivered to you in a Web page for you to print or refer to at a later date through CME LLC’s Lifelong Learning Web Site.


About the Activity
This initiative seeks to take one of the most popular educational services from Consultant magazine and make it available to a broad audience of healthcare practitioners via the Internet. It presents cases like those clinicians see in practice. Viewers are presented with a clinical image and a brief case history and are then challenged to make a diagnosis. Subsequent commentary by Dr. Schneiderman heightens reader awareness of the significance of physical signs and symptoms, resulting in more rapid diagnosis and effective patient management.

This activity has been developed and approved by Dr. Henry Schneiderman, a nationally recognized authority on physical diagnoses. Cases have been reviewed and approved for CME credit by CME LLC, an ACCME-accredited provider of continuing medical education.

Activity Learning Objectives

After going through the activity, participants should be able to:
• Establish the differential diagnoses for each case reviewed.
• Evaluate the presented information and identify the appropriate diagnosis.
• Identify the clinical steps in arriving at the proper diagnosis for each case reviewed and assess how these can be applied to patient care.
