Consent – Some journals require a specific consent form be used to consent the patient represented in the case report. We encourage you to investigate these specific requirements of the journal to which you are planning to submit your case. If there is no specific consent form requirement, you may use this Consent Form (pdf). As a medical student, you will gain experience participating in the process of obtaining and consenting the patient and best practices in doing this at the various clinical settings the patient is seen. We hope you will work closely with the resident and/or attending.
