Aquifer Internal Medicine Clinical Decision-Making Exam in the key features format aligns directly with CDIM’s national curriculum. This exam, validated in a recent study published in Academic Medicine, is the first designed for use in U.S. medical schools utilizing the key features approach, which focuses on challenging decisions in diagnosis and management to target critical decision points.
Custom Courses & Case Library
Are you using the searchable Case Library to find the cases you need or discover new content? From there, it’s easy to pick and choose cases that fit your needs and build a Custom Course. Educators use this feature to assign a subset of cases, for longitudinal integrated clerkships, and to create special topics electives. With Custom Courses, you can assign specific students to the course, access tailored reporting, and easily create exam rosters.

Aquifer’s Educator Guides provide a complete overview of each course, with integration strategies, feature overviews, access to additional teaching resources, and more.
