Simulation Development

Patient Case Simulator (PCS) electronic patient simulation application 
The Patient Case Simulator evaluates student diagnostic reasoning skills by electronically presenting a simulated patient scenario. Based on the patient's chief complaint, students conduct a virtual physical examination, order tests and imaging, create a diagnosis list, and recommend a treatment plan. Students can navigate freely between sections of the simulation, and each section can be customized to show feedback as they proceed. 

Log into a practice PCS case and experience the interface. To log in, click "Regular Screen Version," create a username and password, and use "practicecase" for the casecode. (Note: Access is restricted to computers located on the University of Iowa campus.)
