At the University of Southampton Medical School virtual patients are the key to delivering its patient centred curriculum. In year 1, the aim of the virtual patients is to present a realistic clinical scenario from which students can experience a patient journey and the clinical processes involved. The virtual patients consist of interactive linear animated clinical scenarios with interactive tasks and embedded guided learning materials. They are designed to guide year 1 students through each clinical process whilst helping them apply and integrate their knowledge of the basic sciences in a clinical context.
