Case Report Guidelines for your ISP
Although many of you will participate in more rigorous and hypothesis driven project, some of you may choose to use a case report as your ISP. Please note that just because a patient is interesting to you, it may not be appropriate for your ISP. In order for a Case Report to be eligible as an ISP, it must be appropriate for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. In order to help guide you with the eligibility of your case report, the American College of Physicians (ACP) has developed some guidelines that are on their website.
