CLEVER Cardiology Virtual Patients Cases

Virtual scenarios for cardiology are developed and improved within projects’ activities of the authors and their primary aim is to foster development of critical thinking in students of medical and healthcare disciplines. Individual patient simulations contribute to the case-based learning approach that is learning style close to the needs of practice. Furthermore, we expect their better preparation for bedside teaching.

Are the virtual patient cases useful for you? Would you also require virtual patients from other clinical disciplines? Do you have any comments or suggestions for improvement? Please provide your feedback by filling out a short questionnaire.

Authors developed and share OpenLabyrinth virtual patient cases for the cardiology.
