Welcoming new technologies in the Medical curriculum

Poltava State Medical University (PSMU), located in Poltava, in Ukraine, is one of the oldest leading institutions of higher education in the country.
PSMU’s continuous development includes opening of new faculties and health-related specialties, the training of highly qualified staff, and the introduction of progressive forms and methods of work, among other initiatives.

The faculty of PSMU is well aware of the demand in the healthcare context for constant update and renewal of knowledge, skills and practices. Taking this into account, PSMU has embraced Body Interact Virtual Patients’ innovative technologies, benefiting both the students and professors teaching-learning processes.

Recently, a group of 6th-year medical students had the opportunity to put their acquired pediatric knowledge into practice in Body Interact Virtual Patients’ clinical cases.

Students were able to cover all the steps required to attend to a patient by performing a patient physical examination, requesting medical exams, and providing treatment in accordance with the findings.

PSMU is diligently keeping up with progress and innovation by welcoming new technologies into its teaching process and medical curriculum, such as Body Interact Virtual Patients.

The incorporation of Body Interact Virtual Patients into the curriculum is a prime example of how innovative tools can significantly contribute to medical education. This dynamic approach not only keeps the faculty and students aligned with the latest advancements in medicine but also ensures that graduates are well-equipped to meet the demands of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.
