Travel Medicine Online

Project Summary:

Faculty: Dr. Mary Nettleman ↔ Type of Project: Online Lecture

Several didactic materials were developed and integrated as part of an online course curriculum for teaching travel medicine to medical students. The goal of these materials was to provide instructional tools on travel medicine appropriate for medical students during their pre-clinical years. The materials are also appropriate for use in a problem-based learning module, self-guided learning or could be assigned as part of a clinical clerkship.

The materials included  a narrated slide presentation, and a video interview to demonstrate taking a pre-travel patient care history. In addition, iPod and PDA versions of the narrated presentation were created to allow portability of the content for just in time learning.

Focused H & P Cases

Project Summary:

Faculty: Dr. Dianne Wagner & Brian Hill ↔ Type of Project: Website Design

 The purpose of the site is to provide medical students with examples of patient cases similar to what they will experience in their clerkships.  

The videos show from a student’s perspective, multiple parts involved in patient care beginning with an initial focused H&P, a case presentation to an attending physician, a follow-up visit with the patient, and written records for the patient encounters. There are separate cases for each clerkship.   

Each clerkship material contains  pre-video and post-video surveys to assess the utility and functionality of these cases as part of a student’s overall medical school experience.

Project Summary:

Faculty: Dr. Kathy Lovell ↔ Type of Project: Website Design

The educational website was designed to provide information for medical students in their second year of study about  the Neurologic Exam. The materials teach students how to perform a screening neurologic exam, how to interpret abnormal findings in a screening neurologic exam, neuroanatomy underlying neurologic exam elements and the location of lesions if abnormalities are found on a screening neurologic exam.

Sections of the website  include online lecture segments, exam demonstrations and videos of abnormal findings.

Project Summary:

Faculty: Dr. Cindy Arvidson ↔ Type of Project: Website Design

A website for the CHM Medical Microbiology and Immunology course was designed to serve as the hosting platform for a set of virtual, interactive bacteriology labs (developed by vuDAT)  to allow students to learn a variety of tests that are done in a diagnostic microbiology laboratory to identify bacterial pathogens from patient samples.  

Five different modules are available in the site and each module demonstrates a different laboratory test.  Using the Virtual Interactive Bacteriology Laboratory practice modules, students are given a opportuntiy to practice and learn to perform and interpret various basic lab procedures ( e.g., interpret a gram stain, learn to streak an agar plate to isolate bacteria, become familiar with different types of media for isolation and cultivation of pathogenic bacteria, etc. ), before setting foot on the physical lab space. 

Later on, in the real laboratory setting students are asked to apply the culture and tests learned in the virtual modules to identify bacterial unknowns associated with clinical case histories in a small group format.

Neuropathology Navigator

 Project Summary:

Faculty: Dr. Kathy Lovell ↔ Type of Project: Website Design

This project covers the neuropathology content taught for second year medical students. It includes didactic information, images with interactive descriptions, case studies, and practice questions with feedback for 10 neuropathology topics. The website can be used online or downloaded.  Students can navigate linearly or easily just to specific topics or subtopics.  Various types of interactive exercises are included for practice.

The project is designed for students to proceed through the content at their own pace, with practice cases and questions available for students to test their mastery of the material. Images have interactive arrows and pathology descriptions so that students can check their understanding.  Feedback for questions reinforces major points to enhance learning.
