Welcome to Penn Pearls!


General Medicine rounds can be hectic. Our goal is to help you find quick 30-90 second teaching points to promote learning during busy rounds.


Ideally, even on a busy service you can still insert a 30-90 second pearl at the end of a patient presentation to promote learning on rounds.


Within the menu button you can select pearls for five sections of Internal Medicine. These are structured in "pimping" question format. Scope of topics is limited to things that can be taught in only 30-90 seconds.


Geared toward residents and attendings, some of the pearls include PubMed links to papers with more extensive detail.
