Description: Whilst there is growing evidence for the value of several forms of peer teaching in medical education, little is known about the feasibility of such an approach in courses of clinical reasoning. The University Medical Center Utrecht offers a clinical reasoning course for first and second year students which previously had been occasionally led by sixth year, i.e. near-peer students. This paper evaluates a version of this course, fully delivered by final year students.
