When you're sick, you go to a doctor to figure out what's wrong. But how doctors work isn't some impenetrable mystery. Rather, there's an art and science that goes into how they diagnose and treat patients. With The Great Courses, you don't have to soldier through medical school to learn how doctors diagnose and treat patients. All you need is Medical School for Everyone: Grand Rounds Cases, in which Dr. Roy Benaroch, a practicing physician and an adjunct assistant professor of pediatrics at the Emory University School of Medicine, guides you through 24 unique Grand Rounds that reveal insights into how doctors do what they do. Whether you're a patient, a current or future medical professional, or someone just looking to enjoy a good mystery, you'll discover how doctors use medical science to identify and combat conditions, injuries, and diseases; uncover tiny clues patients can sometimes fail to notice; sometimes make misdiagnoses that lead to costly (and life-threatening) problems; and think their way toward putting patients on the fast track to proper treatment. Investigate Intriguing Medical Mysteries Each lecture is a specific Grand Rounds in which you're presented with a perplexing problem and then follow an expert as he takes the necessary steps to figure out the underlying issue and how best to treat it. Among the insights you'll learn are: What specific questions doctors ask-and why; What doctors look for during physical exams or when examining test results; and How doctors use a network of information to narrow down a diagnosis. Drawn from actual medical stories, these 24 Grand Rounds take you everywhere from the calm of a doctor's office to the chaos of an emergency room.
