Effective continued education: virtual learning program now available for physicians

CompuGroup Medical is introducing the INMEDEA simulator to the consumer market

Koblenz, May 16th, 2011: Pilots have a flight simulator and the INMEDEA simulator now makes this technology a reality for physicians and those aspiring to become one with an electronic platform that clinicians can use to learn and continue their education by means of real examples. The application accompanies the user during the treatment of clearly presented cases - from a simple knee reflex up to interventions. The certified software credits the user with continued education points and can now be purchased through retailers or online.

Physicians and medical students can now use the INMEDEA simulator in the comfort of their home for targeted testing and training of their theoretic and practical knowledge. The virtual patient cases are structured to closely mirror real-life situations - users can make decisions about diagnostic steps, make diagnoses and check their actions for conformity to treatment guidelines. The software uses numerous images and short films to clearly present the cases and has won several awards.

Collect continued education points with the INMEDEA simulator
Physicians who still need to collect continued education points can be happy because medical associations have accepted the e-learning tool as a certified continued education instrument. This allows clinicians to easily pursue their continued education - anytime and anywhere. Users can choose from among three topics:

- The most frequent disorders in four individual modules.
- A collection of tropical medicine cases with varying degrees of difficulty.

- Two modules for post-mortem review.

Depending on the number of modules, medical students will pay 30 to 60 euros and physicians between 100 to 130 euros. The e-learning tool can be purchased through retailers, e.g. Amazon. The INMEDEA website () has links to all of the online offers.

Grade “A” for the excellent preparation of the learning content
CompuGroup Medical closely works with medical schools and hospitals in designing the INMEDEA simulator. This ensures that the basic medical knowledge and the patient cases are always up-to-date. First users have already graded the learning content as good or very good and feel that the case modules are very well prepared. Starting right now, effective learning at high standards is achievable!
