The Professional Skill Builder: A virtual coach for cardiology and pulmonary medicine


Developed collaboratively between faculty of the U-M Medical School and Medical School Information Services, the Professional Skill Builder (PSB) is an engaging, safe environment for learners to enrich pulmonary and cardiac skills. Acting as a virtual coach, the PSB provides interactive web-technology and rich multimedia to challenge learners with authentic cases accompanied by feedback and guidance from academic cardiologists and pulmonologists. It improves learner confidence in their observational and interpretive skills through practice, requires no classroom time, and can be accessed by the learner at any time anywhere in the world. Be sure to use headphones when completing the exercises.
