|Abstract:||Medical diagnosis is a critical skill that is usually developed with experience in interacting with, diagnosing, and managing patients. Computer delivered, case-based learning environments can be developed to provide students with valuable diagnostic experiences prior to dealing with real patients. Diagnostic skill requires physicians to understand and use causal reasoning in order to make predictions. That causal reasoning may be scaffolded in the design of those environments. This paper describes the scaffolding of causal reasoning in making initial diagnoses, determining etiology, and making differential diagnoses in platelet related problems.|
