A revolutionary paradigm in undergraduate medical education
Practicum Script is an online simulation-based programme aimed at enhancing clinical reasoning and problem-solving skills as well as introducing the concept of uncertainty in decision-making. Its methodology is founded on cognitive psychology and complexity sciences. Students face clinical challenges based on real patients. The simulator presents a comprehensive evaluation of all stages of clinical reasoning, from hypotheses generation (heuristic reasoning) to corroboration (inductive reasoning), through decision-making in the presence of new clinical data of the patients (hypothetical-deductive reasoning). Its feedback model stimulates reflection on actions (metacognition) based on the responses given by experts and evidence-based medicine.
The pool of cases in Practicum Script is provided by renowned specialists from top universities and the contents are validated by an international panel of experts and local auditors. Practicum Script offers exercises that are particularly suited to train and reinforce the students' ability to integrate and apply different types of knowledge, as well as to understand and weigh different perspectives in complex cases, promoting active learning in class or remotely. Professors can access individual and group results throughout the entire training cycle, and are provided with an optional resource to conduct debriefing sessions. Practicum Script maximizes the acquisition of experiential knowledge by students in their transition to professional practice.
