A project to deliver Practicum Script to medical students was successfully presented during the EBMA 2018 conference

The arrival of Practicum Script to the university sphere has gained momentum after the annual conference of the European Board of Medical Assessors (EBMA), held on November 23 and 24 in Braga (Portugal). 

 

Practicum Foundation is invited to join the Spanish Industrial Hub of the Human Brain Project

1000 million in 10 years to simulate the complexity of the human brain through supercomputing. That is the proposal of The Human Brain Project, flagship of European science that aims to assimilate to the arrival on the Moon with the Apollo mission.

Practicum Script launches a pilot project for the application of the simulator to graduate medical students at the Catholic University of Argentina

The Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina (UCA) has joined the EBMA program to participate in an international, multicenter, research program that will include the application of Practicum Script to fourth- and fifth-grade medical students. 

Dr. Mella, coeditor of the Gastroenterology course at Practicum Script: “Learning to handle shades of gray is the art of medicine”

"Many times in medicine you have to deal with uncertainty, and that is the gray spectrum; learning to handle shades of gray is the art of medicine." These words were said by Dr. José Manuel Mella, a coeditor of Practicum Script in the area of Gastroenterology. The Argentine physician argues that "as you see more patients, you find (...) easier ways to solve the same problem."

Dr. Pérez de Isla: “The clinical eye is accumulated experience; it is not a gift, it is simply learning”

We interviewed Dr. Leopoldo Pérez de Isla, a Practicum Script validator and Head of the Cardiovascular Imaging Unit of the Hospital Clínico San Carlos in Madrid (Spain). We asked him about matters such as medical criteria, training of clinical reasoning skills, and experimentation in an environment free of consequences. 

Practicum Script deploys 4 new training courses for more than 3,500 physicians in 3 Hispanic-American countries

Practicum Script has launched a new campaign with four new training courses in Spain, Argentina, and Ecuador. The academic offer is supported by the Clinical Cardiology Section of the Spanish Society of Cardiology (SEC) and is sponsored by Mylan, the Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC), and a leading laboratory in generic compounds with a strong presence in Ecuador. 

The president of the FAC renews his commitment to Practicum and ensures that “there is no way to approach the patient without permanent training”

Dr. Adrián D'Ovidio explained that "it is the policy of our national board to continue with the agreement," referring to the agreement signed in 2016 between the organization that he leads, the Argentine Federation of Cardiology (FAC), and the Practicum Foundation. Thanks to this agreement, both institutions commit to continuous medical development and catapult the international fame of the simulator of real clinical cases, Practicum Script.

Prof. Dr. Lifshitz: “Structuring diagnostic and therapeutic thinking is an unsolved pedagogical need”

Prof. Dr. Alberto Lifshitz, a recognized Mexican medical educator, "shares the view that diagnosis by analogy, which is the most often taught, is insufficient." In his opinion, what Practicum Script does while breaking with traditional formats of single correct answers and confronting uncertainty, "is not a very well understood subject by hard scientists, but it is the scenario in which we, clinicians, move." 

 

Prof. Dr. Freeman: “Assessments should not be only of learning but also for learning”

Prof. Dr. Adrian Freeman is an expert in medical education and president of the European Board of Medical Assessors (EBMA), an organization that has audited the Practicum Script simulator a year ago. His conversation with Practicum Script suggests that timing and international vocation are the tool’s main credits.
