Virtual OSCE Case Study
Cloud-based, virtual simulation management technology fuels marathon day of education and learning to remove Covid-19 barriers to clinical training

Challenge

Since 1965, one of the leading multi-campus healthcare science universities in Canada, the Michael G. DeGrotte School of Medicine, McMaster University, has been educating the next generation of medical doctors and healthcare clinicians. Due to Covid-19, clinical simulation training across their three campuses has been at a standstill, as the campuses were evacuated to slow the spread of the Coronavirus.

Wow. I am so impressed. Huge thank you to everyone for all of their help and efforts in getting potentially the first and largest virtual OSCE of its kind off the ground.
