There's an art and science behind how doctors diagnose and treat medical patients. Where do doctors get these skills? The Grand Rounds experience, where they practice how to make accurate diagnoses by examining real patients. And with Dr. Benaroch's 24 unique lectures, you'll explore how a master physician solves medical problems just like a detective.
Whether you're a patient, a current or future medical professional, or just someone who enjoys a good mystery, you'll discover how doctors use medical science to identify and combat injuries and diseases; how they uncover tiny clues patients can fail to notice; how they sometimes make misdiagnoses that lead to costly (and life-threatening) problems; and how they think their way toward putting patients on the fast track to proper treatment.
Drawn from actual medical stories, these 24 Grand Rounds take you everywhere from the calm of a doctor's office to the chaos of an emergency room. You'll hear how a 33-year-old man's fever and mouth sores are clues to one of today's most notorious diseases; why an explorer's life-threatening nausea and pain demand emergency surgery; how doctors treat a trauma patient at the site of an accident; and much more.
Dr. Benaroch has crafted a rewarding learning experience; one packed with thrilling Grand Rounds cases that will captivate you, that will provide you with an exciting new way to think about medicine, and that will help you become a better, more informed patient.

Actually, I've listened to it twice now and plan a third! I learn something new each time, and the professor's style is enjoyable and comfortable. Although the content is highly specialized and detailed, Dr. Benaroch is not the least bit pedantic, and he brings everything to life for the listener. I loved how, after a few chapters, I was anticipating his questions and "talking" along with him as he processed each patient's situation. It was such a thrill to catch myself blurting out the possible or probable diagnosis!
There are numerous "stories" in this set, each story being its own patient, set of symptoms, and discussion. It is impossible not to learn medical concepts while enjoying the stories. Dr. Benaroch starts out with a particular patient, but then branches out and discusses the bigger picture for each medical condition he covers.
They are all equally enjoyable and fascinating.
It made me wish Dr.Benaroch was one of my "in network" docs.
I buy and listen to at least four Great Courses a year, and have for the past six years. This set is, by far, my most favorite set to date. I intend to re-listen to these lectures until I have them memorized!
