Medical Investigation 101: A Book to Inspire Your Interest in Medicine and How Doctors Think
Your inquisitive high schooler is going to love this book. Medical Investigation 101 is an eye-opening look at how doctors analyze the medical mysteries they are confronted with every day. There are three components to the course: the Medical Investigation 101 textbook, the Medical Investigation 101 workbook, and the Medical Investigation 101 teacher’s edition, which is the answer key for the workbook.

The major theme of the Medical Investigation 101 book is the medical diagnostic process using a variety of realistic case studies. Starting with the patient’s chief complaint, the student is instructed to also consider symptoms, examination notes, the patient’s medical records, and so forth.

Along the way, your child will not only learn more about situations that they might have experienced, seen, or heard about, but also touch on practical information like lifestyle habits and CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation).

The Medical Investigation 101 workbook has a number of activity pages like crossword puzzles or anatomical drawings to label, to reinforce vocabulary and concepts taught. Even students who have no desire to pursue the medical field will take a keen interest in Medical Investigation 101 because everyone wants to know how their body functions.

Fantastic way to study anatomy

This is a great curriculum. I have recommended it to several friends with children interested in the medical field. My son is not interested but really enjoyed the curriculum. It’s such a practical, fun, and interesting way to follow up the semester of anatomy study to complete his year. Recommend hands down.

Medical Investigation 101

I was looking forward to using this book for my co-op science class but was disappointed to see incorrect information in it. It says that optometrist do not treat eye infections. This is false. Optometrists do treat eye infections and in many states also treat glaucoma. Now, I will not be using it.

Thank you for taking the time to post this review! We reached out to one of the authors for his thoughts, and here is his response, which we thought you would appreciate hearing:

'Thank you for alerting us that a correction is appropriate regarding the role of Optometrists in today's healthcare arena. Several specialties in healthcare have advanced their scope of practice over the years. Laws specifically regulating the scope of practice can vary from state to state. However, your point is taken, and we apologize for the error. Optometrists currently treat eye infections in the vast majority of states at this time. We took this opportunity to make the correction to our manuscript such that all books printed going forward will simply state that Optometrists do not perform eye surgery as a differentiation from Ophthalmologists. We appreciate your attention to detail and hope you will reconsider our book for your course based on its overall value and knowing that you contributed to improving the book.
