Annals Virtual Patients test physicians' decision-making
skills with complex clinical simulations
Philadelphia, March 17, 2014 — Annals of Internal
Medicine today launched a new interactive medical education
tool designed to test physicians' decision-making skills. Annals Virtual Patients
uses a unique "if this-then that" format so that each learner goes
down his or her own path through a complex clinical simulation.
Each simulation covers the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of
a virtual patient. Upon completion of each case, physicians may
earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of
Certification (MOC) credits.
Annals Virtual Patients is uniquely formatted to allow
physicians to learn from mistakes as they proceed through the
simulations. Selecting a response prompts a detailed explanation of
the medical consequences based on the answer chosen. At the end of
each case, the physician is presented with a complete summary of
the clinical problem and solution.
The cases will be available to ACP members, Annals
subscribers, as well as internists, who are not members of ACP or
subscribers to Annals.
The cases were developed by Annals of Internal Medicine
editors in collaboration with faculty of the Division of General
Internal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.
"Annals Virtual Patients is an exceptionally engaging way to
earn CME and MOC credits," said Christine Laine, MD, MPH,
editor-in-chief of Annals of Internal Medicine and senior
vice president of the American College of Physicians. "We encourage
physicians to immerse themselves in each unique, new case that is
sure to enrich their clinical knowledge."
