The class takes a programmed approach to Section C, covering basic concepts and developing each subset of this section through lecture, discussion, and solving full vignette problems typical of those encountered on the LARE.
Class pin ups of a number of the vignettes may be done and solutions and issues discussed. Question and answer sessions will follow each work period. Desk crits while working are part of the class. A 90 page syllabus and 21 vignettes will be given out.
