Abstract

Three quasi-experimental studies, and a survey-based study examining the effectiveness of and principles embodied in the Diagnostic Pathfinder, a software tool for teaching diagnostic problem solving in veterinary medicine. It appears that when students learn diagnostic problem solving in the context of authentic cases, are required to consider all potentially relevant information that they have identified in their solution, and receive immediate feedback, their ability to solve diagnostic problems improves.
