Abstract

We report an interactive course design which simulated the clinical setting for practicing basic hospital skills. The two-part course included (1) instructor-led, Flash-based interactive lectures; and (2) web-based case using interactive hospital forms. Our program evaluation showed that integrated sessions complemented with web-based interactive cases and hospital forms offered a better student preparation for the Geriatric Medicine clerkship and improved tutor perceptions of student performance during early rotations in the academic year.
