The grant project Training Against Medical Error (TAME), financed by the European Union, has been completed. During 2016-2019 academic years two elective courses were introduced: "Training against medical error in Pediatrics" (for 5th year students in the specialty "Pediatrics") and "Training against medical error in Surgery" (for 6th year students in the specialty "General Medicine").
194 students worked with twelve virtual patients on the OpenLabyrinth platform using D-PBL (problem-oriented learning with critical thinking development). Upon completion of the classes, the students were motivated to create their own surgical case "Acute appendicitis in pregnancy". After testing the case, it will be added to the general database of ZSMU virtual patients.
Congratulations to all creative project participants. 6th year students of the Medical Faculty No. 1 (group 1) were specially awarded for the hard work. Good luck in studies and scientific challenges!
