Schulich Medicine student wins second place in Virtual Patient Challenge

Congratulations to Abdul Naeem, Medicine Class of 2014, on his second place finish in the Canadian Healthcare Education Commons (CHESC-CESC) Virtual Patient Challenge. This award from the Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada (AFMC) and Canada Health Infoway recognizes important contributions to e-health and e-learning among Canadian medical students and highlights the utility of virtual patients for learning, teaching and assessment.

The focus of the challenge was on virtual patients that incorporate the use of electronic health records (EHRs) and other aspects of e-health to improve patient care.

As a recipient of the award, Naeem will receive a grant of $600 and his virtual patient case will be featured at the Canadian Conference on Medical Education later this month in Ottawa. The case will also be available online at the AFMC-Infoway Physician in Training e-Health Curriculum & e-Learning Community.
