Group Teaching Heart Auscultation Quiz

This quiz is designed to provide unknown cases for group discussion with a clinical teacher. Diagnoses can be provided on request. Teachers should please provide the following: institution, type of students (i.e., 2nd year Medicine, etc.) and number in a group. Send to teachingheartauscultation@gmail.com.

For best audio quality with group teaching I recommend that participants should access the cases individually on their own mobile device or laptop. Earbuds are quite satisfactory for this purpose, much better than room speakers.
