Abstract

Date Presented 4/17/2015

This study examines how a lab experience with patient educators (PEs) affected reasoning 1 yr later during students’ Level II fieldwork. Results suggest that students have increased self-awareness, confidence, and empathy, which contributes to advance reasoning. A model of clinical reasoning is presented.
