Why students love this course

"For me personally, I learned to have a checklist in mind when treating patients and to be very clear with every step I take and why I am doing that. It also motivated me to familiarise myself with different guidelines and protocols.The explanatory videos were incredibly useful as they covered every step and filled in any gaps that I might have had."

Sophie3rd-year medical student

"My clinical reasoning is much broader after taking this course, as it helps me to think and reason for different diagnoses. The clinical part, physical and psychological examinations are very complete, since the patient can be placed in different ways and feels like real life."

JoshuaMedical Student

"The fact that I felt like I was in front of a real patient was the best. I tried to take it as a game and less seriously but it was impossible! This course is a very didactic way of learning."

JennyMedical Student

"This course made memorising reference ranges a lot easier because they were repeatedly shown. I also really benefitted from seeing the full clinical picture (i.e. the patient’s presentation, vital functions and medical test results as well as imaging). It is especially useful at the moment to get some clinical experience as most placements are suspended."

Sophie3rd-year medical student

"This course brings a high-level of reliability as the patients reacted to everything I did. The subsequent feedback after finishing each case is very useful, since I was able to see what was important for precise diagnosis, what I missed and should not, what could/should be improved in my approach."

BranislavMedical Student

"It was a very good way to reinvigorate targeted skills for specific conditions. The clinical cases are very realistic and follow a logical sequence that helps reinforcing clinical skills in a practical setting."
