There’s an art and science behind how doctors diagnose and treat medical patients. Where do doctors get these skills? The Grand Rounds experience, where they practice how to make accurate diagnoses by examining real patients. And with Dr. Benaroch’s 24 unique lectures, you’ll explore how a master physician solves medical problems just like a detective.
Whether you’re a patient, a current or future medical professional, or just someone who enjoys a good mystery, you’ll discover how doctors use medical science to identify and combat injuries and diseases; how they uncover tiny clues patients can fail to notice; how they sometimes make misdiagnoses that lead to costly (and life-threatening) problems; and how they think their way toward putting patients on the fast track to proper treatment.
Drawn from actual medical stories, these 24 Grand Rounds take you everywhere from the calm of a doctor’s office to the chaos of an emergency room. You’ll hear how a 33-year-old man’s fever and mouth sores are clues to one of today’s most notorious diseases; why an explorer’s life-threatening nausea and pain demand emergency surgery; how doctors treat a trauma patient at the site of an accident; and much more.
Dr. Benaroch has crafted a rewarding learning experience; one packed with thrilling Grand Rounds cases that will captivate you, that will provide you with an exciting new way to think about medicine, and that will help you become a better, more informed patient.
