Thinking about each patient in particular and their environment is what allows us to think outside the box

DR. CARLOS GIORDANA

The Argentine cardiologist from Córdoba, Dr. Carlos Giordana, is a tenacious user of the Practicum Script clinical simulation platform. At the age of 42, he is the Head of the Cardiology Division of the Hospital Misericordia Nuevo Siglo, a position he combines with his practice at the Reina Fabiola University Clinic. He is also part of the teaching staff at the National University of Córdoba as an assistant professor. The 30 cases "have helped me experience real clinical cases of a wide variety of situations, offering an online opportunity for learning and deciding which approaches to take, comparing these approaches with those chosen by experts."

DR. VICENTE MIRÓ PALAU

Dr. Vicente Miró Palau, a physician in charge of the Ischemic Heart Disease and Cardiac Rehabilitation Unit at La Fe Hospital in Valencia (Spain), to which he has dedicated his career after residency, is a distinct user of the simulation platform Practicum Script Cardiology. His indicators prove that: 85% of coincidences in scenarios and 90% in hypotheses. In his favor is the fact that he audited a couple of cases for the course. From this position and as a resident preceptor and professor at the University of Valencia, he relies on the simulator as a method to develop medical criteria.

DR. PAOLA COURTADE

"I work as a clinical cardiologist at the Ventura Lloveras Hospital, a center in the suburbs of San Juan, and I am also employed at Cimac, a private clinic where I practice in the areas of sports, smoking cessation, and stress test." This is the professional profile of the Argentine physician Paola Courtade. She informs us that in addition to having done a postgraduate course in sports medicine and cardiovascular rehabilitation, she is the head of Semiology practices at the Catholic University of Cuyo. She also integrates several FAC committees and carries out cardiovascular prevention campaigns, which led her to win an award from the Medifé Foundation in 2013. That same year, together with FAC and its then-president, Dr. D'Ovidio, she authored a paper on ventricular myxoma in a young woman with recurrent stroke.

Testimonies

For me, the program is very interesting, since it allows me to sharpen my interrogation and direct it more towards a specific pathology and to have more knowledge of laboratory and cabinet exams. I think it is very important that we keep our medical sagacity throughout our practice and that in the few minutes it takes to answer any of the cases that Practicum Script presents, you acquire more knowledge.

Dr. Miguel Olivares Alcocer

I would like to express my gratitude to the Practicum Institute of Health Sciences Research for the opportunity given to Latin American physicians  to access and take different courses of our specialty for the benefit of our dear patients, in my case in Mexico. It has encouraged me to improve myself and keep abreast of the advances in Pediatrics and put into practice the knowledge acquired in the hospital where I work. Thanks friends and congratulations to this valuable team of Practicum Script Education.

Dr. Heriberto Fuentes García

I am grateful for this study tool that, through Nestlé and with this method, allows us to review different issues with cases that confront us in decision-making and serve us in the daily consultation.

Dr. Josué Refugio de León Padilla

Pediatrician in Jalisco (Mexico)

It is an excellent educational support platform for the pediatrician, offers very specific clinical challenges with alternatives for diagnosis and differential diagnoses, with the support of experts, a bibliography and a forum to share opinions. It's easy to navigate and it's fun, a tool that's worth using and making the most of it.
