There is a huge difference between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. While our MBBS curriculum is evenly poised to help students understand and learn the basics of many diseases, it is never similar to a real-life experience of treating patients. Even while accompanying professors and seniors in the wards, students often get to know only a snapshot of the patient’s diagnosis procedure and treatment protocol. Others are often lost in follow-up because the student is allocated to a different ward by then.
FITTO brings each student a chance to diagnose, treat and follow-up with their very own virtual patients. From auscultation sounds to X Ray pictures, history taking to drugs, the David’s Son’s Challenge promises an exciting journey into the young doctor’s decision making skills.
Based on Annals Virtual Patients by the American College of Physicians, FITTO’s challenge is a story similar to multiple choice questions. However, instead of the standard MCQ questionnaire where every question is from a different context, here it is the story of a single patient.
Each choice will take the student on a separate path. We acknowledge the fact that in the practice of medicine, different paths can be chosen to reach the same outcome.
Out of respect for this, our questions and choices will be set such that the student can reach the diagnosis even if he/she has ordered an unnecessary test or focused on the wrong part of the history on a few occasions.
The student/team reaching the correct diagnosis first shall win the challenge.
