  • Starting from the scenario given, identify issues relevant to nuclear medicine practice and comment on how each might be dealt with.
  • Synthesize information learned in a variety of settings into a comprehensive approach to the scenario presented.
  • Discriminate between issues that are pertinent to a particular scenario and those that are peripheral to it.
  • Actively participate in class discussions on each scenario, and where appropriate, justify and/or defend one's position.
