In this lecture series from The Great Courses’ “Medical School for Everyone: Grand Rounds Cases,” Dr. Roy Benaroch presents medical cases that reveal insights into how doctors do what they do. In each lecture, he introduces and examines a real patient with a perplexing medical problem. Follow an expert as he solves the mystery, taking the necessary steps to figure out the underlying issue and how best to treat it. Among the course’s insights are what specific questions doctors ask and why; what doctors look for during physical exams or when examining test results; and how doctors use this information to narrow down a diagnosis. Dr. Benaroch presents medical knowledge in plain language that can be easily understood by the average patient. This course is a stimulating way to gain an appreciation for how the body works in health and disease, and to improve doctor/patient communication to become a smarter, healthier patient.

Instructors/Coordinators: Rick Hearn and Susan Hanna
