i-Human Patients® Cases
Comprehensive simulated patient encounters.
Development and assessment of diagnostic reasoning skills requires problem-specific solutions, knowledge, and experience linked directly to presenting symptoms and diseases. Mastery of these skills also requires objective evidence-based feedback, active engagement and hundreds of encounters representing a broad variety and complexity of problems. We believe that these requirements are best achieved through computer-based diagnostic decision simulations.
