Case reports are marked locally by LPMESs and RAPMs. The total score available is 30 and the marking criteria is divided into the following sections:

  • Defining the question
  • Succinct relevant clinical details
  • Important features researched and discussed
  • Relevant, up-to-date information
  • Drawing conclusions
  • Professional Writing 

All case reports are cross-marked to ensure marking is consistent.
