Interactive Cases

Click here to access two interactive case studies. Practice Improvement using Virtual Online Training (PIVOT) provides experiential learning, tests skills in real time and offers feedback. The cases teach the skills necessary to recognize the early symptoms and signs of lupus, think through an appropriate differential diagnosis, and perform an initial evaluation for (or to rule out) lupus and lupus flares.
