Specialty Scoop Episode 4: CyberPatient: Hands-On Skills
Imagine a virtual hands-on learning opportunity where trainees could access patients 24/7, from anywhere in the world. Faculty would have access to the platform, review trainees’ outcomes and provide feedback at any time of day. Fast forward to… now! Gone are the days where a medical student shows up at the bedside table flipping through a medical textbook.
In this episode of Specialty Scoop, join Dr. Karim Qayumi, FRCSC and the founder of the UBC Centre for Excellence, Simulation, Education, and Innovation, as he tells why and how he created CyberPatient – an interactive virtual simulation that provides learners with a clinical environment to practice and learn clinical skills… in a safe space. He also shares his future plan of evolving CyberPatient to fill the other gaps in medical education, including the gap between individual training and team performance in the hospital, communication skills and more.
