Description:

“Allison Jacobson” is a 19-year-old sophomore majoring in pre-med. The past few weeks she has been studying for finals. She feels tired, even though she knows she has been getting enough sleep at night. She also has frequent headaches, and several times it has felt like her heart “missed a beat.” Yesterday at lunch she fainted while waiting in line at the cafeteria. Students read a short description of the patient’s history and symptoms, then answer a set of directed questions designed to probe their understanding of the anatomy, physiology, and pathology underlying the Allison’s condition. The case has been used in both a sophomore-level course in human anatomy and physiology and a senior-level course in general physiology.
