Cases: Are similar to Tracings except Cases focus on management as well as diagnosis, and may take longer to complete.
Past Tracings: Select Past Tracings from the menu or from the home page to see a list of all past Tracings.
Past Cases: A list of Past Cases is also available.
Submit a Tracing or Case: An opportunity to have your unique tracings or cases considered for posting.
Two types of interactive quizzes are also available from the menu under Test Your Knowledge
Quizzes: There are two quiz types – Diagnosis & Treatment and Medtronic Therapies. Both quiz types work in the same way as a Tracing or Case, except they provide scoring.
