Case-Based Learning


The following library guide highlights case-based learning resources available from QUL, including print and electronic books, videos and multimedia. Choose your specialty to the left or start with the interdisciplinary case files from AccessMedicine below.

In addition to books, videos and other multimedia resources, there are numerous journals devoted to publishing case reports and case studies (a list of examples can be found here). Most of these journals are open access and they include titles in general medicine such as the Journal of Medical Case Reports as well as titles in medical specialities such as Gynecologic Oncology Reports. A recent article titled "New journals for publishing medical case reports" cautions readers about predatory open access case report journals with questionable publishing practices. 

If you are looking for case reports and case studies that have been published on specific topics, you may find it helpful to search bibliographic databases such as Medline, Embase and CINAHL. Ask a Health Sciences Librarian for help if needed.
