Learn new skills with interactive medical cases and videos from the New England Journal of Medicine

Reviewing a procedure or learning a new clinical skill can sometimes be accomplished more effectively with visual aids and demonstrations. The New England Journal of Medicine offers two multimedia products that can be especially useful to visual learners: Interactive Medical Cases and Videos in Clinical Medicine


Interactive Medical Cases are derived from cases studies published in the NEJM. Users are presented with a patient, complete with medical history and chief complaints. They are then asked to answer questions about types of tests that should be performed, how to analyze tests results, and best forms of treatment for the patient’s condition. Upon completion of the medical case module, users are eligible to earn 2 ABIM MOC (American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification) points, and up to 2 AMA PRA Category 1 credits (need to create a free account in NEJM to claim points).






Videos in Clinical Medicine demonstrate a variety of clinical procedures and skills in a concise, easy-to-follow format. There are a variety of subjects covered including endotracheal extubation, needle aspiration of primary spontaneous pneumothorax, emergency pericardiocentesis, procedural sedation and analgesia in children, and many others. Each video has an accompanying summary (which can also be downloaded as a PDF) and supplementary materials.


The New England Journal of Medicine is available via Becker Medical Library for medical students, faculty, and staff affiliated with the Washington University School of Medicine (must be on the WUSM internet network or log-in with Becker proxy to access most content).
