Dr. G. Paccione's "Reasoning without Resources" clinical case studies

The Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) has posted four of Dr. G. Paccione's "Reasoning without Resources" clinical case studies on its website. The cases are based on Jerry's many years of teaching residents and medical students in a district hospital with very limited resources.  A new case is posted every two weeks followed by detailed "instructor notes" two weeks later.
