What is MedViS?
Medical Virtual Simulation (MedVis) is a not-for-profit organisation that strives to deliver high quality virtual simulation training online for medical students. MedVis was established by foundation doctors in collaboration with the University of Oxford during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each simulation session we run is designed to place the candidate in the shoes of a foundation doctor during an on-call shift. During the program, the facilitators will ask the candidates to virtually manage a wide variety of acute and suitably challenging presentations. Following each scenario, candidates can expect personalised feedback focusing on 4 key domains set out by UKFPO - including assessment, interpreting investigations, initiating management and escalating appropriately.
1. Preparing for F1 - Our main goal is to use evidence based teaching to best prepare medical students for life as a foundation doctor
2. We enable Doctors in training to gain teaching experience and learn invaluable leadership skills.
