i-Human Patients Cases

Comprehensive simulated patient encounters.

Development and assessment of diagnostic and clinical 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.

Choose the virtual simulation case approach that best meets your program's needs.

Peer Reviewed Cases

Developed by clinicians, educators, and leading medical institutions under the financial sponsorship of a third party, such as the American Medical Association and Reliance Foundation.
