Penn State College of Medicine is offering a new learning series to encourage an open mind, scientific skepticism and critical appraisal of academic literature. This mindset and set of skills are crucial for becoming a successful researcher, great clinician and future leader. This learning series is called “Argue to Learn (ART-L),” and its goal is to explore the basic and clinical research behind clinical decision-making and current controversies in medicine.

The series is open to a maximum of 24 medical students. Sessions will be held in Lecture Room C and will also be available via Zoom.

Topics will include:

  • Breast cancer: Screen vs. no screen
  • Glucose management in ICU: Treat vs. not treat
  • Anticoagulation for COVID-19: To do vs. not to do

These will be active learning sessions including a few recommended readings (short commentaries and editorials), small-group discussion, presentation and debate by skilled faculty facilitators.

Presenters include Xuemei Huang, MD, PhD, and Andrew Foy, MD. Moderators include Kent Vrana, PhD; Sunny Dovat, MD, PhD; Daniel Wolpaw, MD; Paul Haidet, MD, MPH; Ira Ropson, PhD; and David Rabago, MD.
