Learning from Cases I just returned from the Cleveland Clinic Case Competition and was reminded again of the strength of our students. The analytical power, poise, and professionalism of the contestants should give us all hope. The case is an outstanding learning tool. You can watch the processes the students use to critically break down a problem and then apply the tools they are acquiring to develop a solution. Add to that a smattering of creativity and youthful optimism, the presentations are inspiring. All of you who encourage your students to participate in case competitions are doing a great service for them. The case facilitates learning and competition ...

Difficult for me to join the former group and dont ...
