Clinical reasoning (CR) is a recursive, multidimensional, and complex process involving informal and formal strategies for the analysis and evaluation of patients’ information. CR skills are traditionally acquired through the experiential learning of undergraduate (UG) students as they progress through the curriculum, particularly as they rotate through clinical placements. Recently there has been an acknowledgement of the need to explicitly teach CR. The University of Nottingham (UoN) aimed to introduce a vertically integrated CR theme. The opportunity provided by this development was used to develop, implement and evaluate this CR curriculum.
