ICVP 2009: Variety and flexibility are key to effective VPs

Dr Rachel Ellaway from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine talks to eViP about the need for Virtual Patients when teaching Canadian students across different cultures, and even different time zones! Flexibility and variety are key for virtual patients, and they can even be taken out of the medical education context – are Virtual Patients for patients and virtual hospitals the future?
