IT Project

What is this about?

This page is a SLIME project to provide useful and interactive revision material in the form of virtual patients to help students prepare for exams, especially ESAs. Doing a case will provide useful information and give you some idea of the patient journey through the NHS, something which is important to understand for phase II. They will be largely based on previous lectures.


We are currently researching student attitudes to virtual patients cases and would greatly appreciate any help. There is a survey to do before trying one of the cases below and one to do after. Both are very short and take less than five minutes to complete.
