For undergraduate students, the best learning resources and tools are those that tap into each of the three key styles of learning: visual (learn by watching), auditory (learn by listening) and kinaesthetic (learn by doing). When it comes to making the transition from student to working medical professional, the undergraduate must successfully be able to demonstrate their clinical competence and patient consultation skills. If you’re looking for the ideal resource that accommodates all three learning styles and helps build the necessary skills in a simulated consultation setting, MEKSI might be the perfect tool for you.
In a typical classroom scenario, the nature of learning is very passive, with students being provided with information on a topic via a lecture, and whilst one student role-plays with the professor, the other students sit passively learning and waiting for their turn. As you can see, this is ultimately a waste of precious resources – particularly time that the remaining students could be using for their own self-directed study.
With MEKSI, all undergraduate students have the opportunity to actively engage and learn collaboratively while being assessed in real time. MEKSI can be used pre-class to highlight areas where students may have issues, in class to assess and have questions and doubts answered in a collaborative environment, and after class to re-test and discuss with fellow students.
MEKSI is here to help undergraduate students become world class doctors by improving their clinical competence.
The scenarios used in the simulated consultations are based on real case studies that come from credible worldwide resources. They are designed to develop the undergrad’s analytical and diagnostic skills, allowing the student to engage with the program by themselves (i.e. using MEKSI Solo where the computer acts as patient in the doctor/patient consultation) or with other undergrads using MEKSI Roleplay, in which students act as doctor and patient in a simulated consultation before swapping roles.
Using MEKSI, undergraduates will experience training in real life situations in the relative security of a controlled environment. They’ll also receive simultaneous, ongoing assessment and feedback to ensure deficiencies are identified and able to be worked on. It’s the learning package no medical undergraduate should go without!
