Medical Pearls | Registration for Educators

For Instructors

Instructors only!

Medical Pearls are a collection of free, email-based educational services for medical trainees—including medical students, medical residents and clinical fellow—that are designed to be used as an adjunct to a clinical rotation.

Those who sign up will receive an email each week day that contains a clinical question or problem. The questions cycle every eight weeks, in order to coincide with the length of many clinical rotations. The answer to each question, or the thought process that leads to the answer, represents a topic or concept which might otherwise be missed during the course of a clinical rotation.

Students are expected to try solving the question independently, and then review the answer with their clinical supervisor. At the end of each week, students will receive an answer set to the week’s questions.

As the instructor, you should subscribe to the instructor version of the pearls. The emails you receive will be slightly different and will provide more details about the program and suggestions on how best to use it as an educational tool. On this page you can sign up to receive the instructor versions of the pearls.
