Overview: In this video-enhanced, CME-certified simulation, clinicians are challenged to appropriately diagnose a patient presenting with multiple complaints, including weight loss. Throughout the activity, clinicians must consider the patient’s medical history and physical evaluation and order appropriate laboratory and diagnostic tests to identify and treat his disease. At the conclusion of the simulation, a brief video discusses the current treatment landscape and emerging treatments for this disease.
