Engaging medical students in mastering essential basic science concepts can be challenging if they don’t understand how or why they are relevant to caring for patients. Aquifer’s Integrated Illness Scripts provide learners the “why” by explicitly connecting clinical features with the science mechanism, laying the groundwork for providing excellent patient care. In this episode, Dr. Leah Sheridan shares why she is such an enthusiastic proponent of teaching with integrated illness scripts and describes how you can incorporate them into teaching pre-clinical and clinical learners.
