    Presenting a Case

    Podium Presentation
    You should use the following format for your case presentation (NOTE = 10 minutes total):

    • Case history, initial physical exam, panel questions (4 minutes).  Expect to present your history and physical, ending with a differential diagnosis in 4 minutes (usually 4-5 slides at a speaking rate of 1 minute per slide).
    • Labs, x-rays, course of treatment, return to play, panel comments (4 minutes).  Your workup (lab, imaging, final diagnosis, treatment, & outcome).
    • Comments from the audience (2 minutes).  The remainder of your case presentation time will be devoted to comments, questions and discussion between you, the panel, and the audience.
    • Time your presentation carefully. If you should exceed the allotted time for any section, the chair will stop you mid-presentation.
    • Case presentations are a framework for discussion, and presenters are strongly discouraged from lecturing on their topic.  Include one slide at most, designed to cover teaching points, only if the diagnosis is unusual. It is expected that should the presenter begin to lecture on the topic, the chair will intervene and continue the discussion in a more informal manner.
