Case Based Learning (CBL) is a learning tool that allows medical students to work through a patient case as a team and apply their medical knowledge.
CBL cases present a series of questions including clinical scenarios and ethical situations that the students devise solutions for under the guidance of mentorship. An example non-small cell lung cancer CBL is provided below. The case is designed to be reviewed over a period of four sessions. Please feel free to utilize and/or adapt the attached cancer CBL as needed
