“Dr. Mulloy truly is one of our most skilled and dedicated Case Inquiry faculty members,” said Amy L. Wilson-Delfosse, PhD, Associate Dean for Curriculum, CWRU School of Medicine. 

Karen B. Mulloy, DO, MSCH, was recognized recently with the 2021 Edmond S. Ricanati, MD IQ Facilitator Award made possible through the generosity of the Ricanati family in honor of the late Dr. Ricanati, who was an advocate for small group teaching.  Dr. Mulloy, Associate Professor, PQHS, is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health. 

The Case Inquiry (IQ) is a student-centered, small group learning method that is adapted from the “new” Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach introduced at McMaster University School of Medicine in 2005. IQ is the cornerstone of learning in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum. Nine students join with one faculty facilitator three times a week to approach cases that naturally evoke inquiry and motivation for learning. Learn more about the Case Inquiry (IQ) program here
