Consortium of Universities fo Global Health (CUGH) offers a bi - weekly feature

Consortium of Universities fo Global Health (CUGH) offers a bi - weekly feature: a case - series from rural Uganda called “Reasoning without Resources”.The target audience is clinicians practicing in low resource settings, medicine and family medicine residents, and senior medical students with an interest in clinical global health.

The series is assumes that medical textboo ks, written for those who can access and afford them, have limited relevance to making a diagnosis in most of the world’s hospitals. This case-series addresses that reality by developing clinical skills as the fundamental "diagnostic test" available to clinicians, and sound clinical reasoning as the clinician’s principle resource. Through its Question and Answer format, the series focuses as much on pedagogical process as on biomedical content. In taking on these broad basic challenges, it hopes to inform medical education and cost-effective medical practice in modern medical settings as well.
