eMedici / Interactive Case Studies

emedici logoeMedici is an education resource containing clinical case studies, examination material and topics for continuing professional development. The case studies cover a range of disciplines and are designed to provide an interactive environment to challenge and educate the user. Many of the common and important conditions encountered in medical practice can be found in the eMedici case studies. This module contains three cardiology vignettes, each designed to illustrate key issues where direct input from the General Practitioner is often crucial.

 

The case studies presented have been endorsed by the RACGP and following completion: 2 x Category 2 - Activity Points will be awarded for each case study. We hope that the cardiology eMedici module will provide valuable clinical information and contribute to improving cardiovascular disease outcomes.
