Students follow these steps to work through Akeso cases:

review the case study history in the introduction to the case study. Order medical tests, review additional information and narrow the diagnosis in an interactive problem-base interface. Select a diagnosis in the final diagnoses section of the case study. Receive a case study review automatically generated by the system. This review takes into account the differential diagnoses, the appropriateness of the medical tests the student ordered, and the final diagnoses. Review supplementary study materials provided by the faculty member. Complete a questionnaire to help the faculty member and Akeso strengthen the case studies. complete an assessment that reinforces the critical concepts included in the case study. Discuss the principles of the case study via online bulletin boards with both faculty and peers.
