Interactive patient case scenarios for undergraduate medical students
- Medical Illustration
- Articulate Module Creation
- Graphic Design
The University of Dundee School of Medicine is at the forefront of digital teaching. Students not only get to experience lectures and smaller group sessions but they are also exposed to a whole array of online tutorials and e-learning resources. These resources focus on encouraging students to link basic sciences, such as anatomy, biochemistry and physiology, with the core clinical problems that a patient may present with.

Patient Case Scenarios
Written by content experts for undergraduate medical students,
Created to help students understand layers upon layers of pertinent anatomy. The illustrations are reused throughout the module to maintain visual continuity. They can also be reused in lecture material and other educational resources.
Understand with clinical visuals
To help the students understand we supply them with additional information
of the condition that are accompanied by visuals commonly seen as part
of the diagnostic and treatment route.
LEARNING FROM VISUALS - NORMAL VS ABNORMAL COMPARISONS
Previous teaching resources for this module relied heavily on histology images and clinical imaging, however they were unlabelled and had very little descriptives to help students understand what they were supposed to be looking for.
To help with their understanding I worked with Dr. Oparka to provide labelled visual comparisons of normal imagery vs images of when things go wrong. The accompanying text were also elaborated on as well as external links to further information added, should the student wish to read more.
