The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine (SIDM) is proud to announce today a new $200,000 grant from The Doctors Company Foundation (DCF), awarded to SIDM and our partner, Med-U to improve diagnosis by providing novel training modules on clinical reasoning.

These scenario-based modules represent the first formal educational products to specifically address diagnostic error in the US.  By taking advantage of the stature and scope of the Med-U educational platform, we have the opportunity to reach a substantial portion of US medical trainees. Each module will be incorporated into the Med-U educational platform and used across the country for 3rd and 4th year medical students.  The modules will introduce the cognitive biases that lead to errors in clinical reasoning, how to avoid these pitfalls, and how to recognize and discuss diagnostic errors encountered in everyday patient care, all with the goal of improving diagnosis in practice.

The project will be directed by Doctors Andrew Olsen, Gurpreet Dhaliwal, and Bob Trowbridge, in addition to members of the SIDM Education Committee, along with key staff from Med-U, including Doctors Leslie Fall and Valerie Lang, national experts on developing state-of-the-art teaching modules.

My thanks and appreciation to the project team - we are all looking forward to these first forays in developing the curriculum we need to improve diagnosis.
