The University of Pécs Medical School and the medical education software company, InSimu, are kicking off the new semester with an exciting online diagnostic competition. Teams of 2-3 can test their diagnostic solving abilities through virtual patient scenarios in the InSimu application.
InSimu is an interactive educational platform that provides access to more than 7400 clinical scenarios. It aims to supplement and enhance classroom and case-based education, and broaden students’ clinical experience with patients. Students of the Medical School have already proven their skills by diagnosing more than 16,000 patients successfully on InSimu.
The University of Pécs Medical School and InSimu are inviting both students and educators to participate in an exciting diagnostic challenge. The InSimu Diagnostic Competition 2022, held on 30th September, will provide a gamified learning environment for students to test their diagnostic skills and practice clinical problem-solving in teams.
Students have to diagnose 5 virtual patients using the most cost and time-efficient diagnostic route on INSIMU. To spice up the challenge, students have to cope with the added time pressure: they will have 40 minutes to decide on the most relevant clinical examinations, evaluate the results, and finally, establish the correct diagnoses.
Date and place: September 30, Friday at 15:30 on Zoom
Agenda of the event:
- Dr. László Czopf, Vice-Dean for Education
- Introduction to the InSimu platform and the rules of the competition
