Abstract

There exist many modalities for teaching and testing medical students. One method being explored is computer-based patient simulation. Traditionally, exposure to a variety of patients has been achieved through years of training under the supervision of experts in the field. Computerized patient simulation has been proposed as a method of creating a standardized patient care experience through algorithms and predefined patient findings. One study reported that after experience with computer-based simulation, 80% of students and mentors felt that it should be a mandatory part of medical education. Access to effective simulations with high-yield cases can be costly. Internet-based tools enjoy easy distribution and centralized maintenance. Simulations distributed via the Internet have proven successful in selected medical fields. Automated scoring of patient interactions has also been proposed as a way to eliminate the effort required for mentor evaluation.
