In my quest to find medical case studies appropriate for my high school students, I found little to nothing. I knew, however, that they provide an amazing learning experience that would encourage critical thinking while learning anatomy, physiology, medical terms and pathophysiology. After an exhausting amount of research and development using textbooks, reliable internet sources, my medical background and actual cases, I was able to create 85 medical case studies that I believe will be challenging, yet attainable for high school students. Each case is 4-8 sentences in length and provides enough vital information to make an educated guess of the diagnosis.
This download could be used in an A&P, Health Science or any Medical-based class.

This download includes the following:

  • PDF with 85 cases listed (75 that are considered "common" with 10 "unusual" diagnoses)
  • Fillable PDF with the 85 cases listed that can be completed electronically
  • PDF Quick Answer Key
  • PDF with an explanation and defense for each of the cases
  • PDF listing of all the diagnoses
  • PDF of Common Terminology used with the definition
  • Excel Spreadsheet of the Cases sorted by number and system that is involved
  • PowerPoint with each case on its own slide
  • Video Instructions that will walk you through the documents as well as give ideas of how to vary for difficulty

    Very useful

    The Grey's Pathology medical case studies is user friendly and very useful. I use them as bellringers to get the class started. Some of my students have not had Anatomy or Medical Terminology and they can still participate. You are missing out if you don't have these. :)

    Good value, students found a trick.

    It only took my students about 5 case studies to figure out that they answers are in order on the Disease List compared to the case studies, so #1 is the first choice on the list, #2 is the second choice, so on and so on. Other than that, they are pretty interesting.
