**** HELPFUL HINTS ****The Avatars and cases in the IHP case library are based on “real patients” and as such may at times provide minor incongruent information. As an example, an Avatar may claim to have a “rash” but the skin lesions are not, by medical definition, a rash. Avatars may refuse to answer questions, just like real patients. Phrasing of questions ISimportant. Asking a “similar” question that is less specific may not be scored correct if it does not provide the clarity of information needed to narrow the differential. Our recommendation is to pretend this is a real clinical patient encounter and select a time so you can enjoy the process and not feel pressured for time. Remember, you are not scored on whether you get the correct diagnosis, but rather have you mastered the process. Mastery of the process will help you avoid making diagnostic errors throughout your clinical career.Detailed Instructions Below:
