Patient vignettes are followed by multiple choice questions in established SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan) format through which students explore relevant aspects of patient history, physical examination, and diagnostic studies to determine diagnosis and treatment. The correct response for each step in the case is provided along with evidence-based explanations and epidemiological data. Cases in Clinical Medicine is also an excellent preparatory tool for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE).

Cases in Clinical Medicine is divided into 10 chapters, organized by organ system, and corresponds with the blueprint established for the National Commission on the Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) for the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE).
