A joint team from SGH and PWS won the SGD 200,000 innvplus grant from inlab.
The winning SGH Challenge Statement was : “We are looking for a learning solution that allows medical education to be delivered via an engaging, self-paced, adaptive and easily accessible platform, allowing learners to acquire a new set of clinical skills in using dermoscopy (skin surface microscopy) to detect skin cancer by simulating the experience of examining the skin and training the learner to detect suspicious features.”
The solution designed and proposed by PWS will include bite-sized learning, simulation, gamification and three key innovations in Virtual Bedside Rounds, Gamified CME credits and Virtual Balint Groups.
