To think fast is generally positive; what you should not do is to rush

"As a physician, I graduated from the National University of Rosario (Argentina). I’ve been a cardiologist since 1997, and an emergency medical specialist since 2010. I currently work in the private and public settings at the Juan Bautista Alberdi Hospital in Rosario." This is how Dr. Silvina Galetto describes her professional trajectory. An active user of Practicum Script, she had taken two courses when [Practicum] was launched along with the Argentine Federation of Cardiology. She is especially grateful for "the dilemmatic approach" of the clinical reasoning training program.

DR. MARIA LAURA MINGO

Maria Laura Mingo is a cardiologist in Salta (Argentina). She has been a physician since 2011 and a professor since 2013. Dr. Mingo emphasizes the value of Practicum Script as a collaborative learning network and a vast forum for debate and reflection. She likes to quote the French physiologist Claude Bernard and mentions that “those who do not know what they are looking for will not understand what they find.” Also according to her, “to develop the mental ability to question different hypotheses and request different complementary tests helps and simplifies the path to the final diagnosis.” She also believes that the fact that we "know that [Practicum] is a simulator brings a bit of tranquility."

Mario Sutil Vega is a consultant cardiologist at the Parc Taulí Hospital in Sabadell, Catalonia (Spain). He completed his residency at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and obtained his title from Bellvitge.

He has more than 12 published studies and is a member of the Spanish Society of Cardiology and the European Society of Cardiology. According to Dr. Vega, "The diagnostic and therapeutic reality is more complex than a 'true or false;' it is necessary to integrate multiple data and be aware of the specificities of each of them."

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.

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.

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.
