This project seeks to enhance first year medical student teaching in physician patient communication through the use of online simulations. Because of limitations in current traditional teaching approaches, additional strategies are needed to teach both basic and complex communication skills to students. Online simulations will allow students to practice basic communication skills prior to interacting with real patients and expand opportunities for students to practice complex communication skills. The simulations will target (1) the use of patient-centered interviewing skills to assess a patient’s chief complaint and history of present illness, and (2) the elicitation of and direct response to the patient’s statements of emotion.
