Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 1999;153(5):548. doi:

This CD-ROM interactive program is an effective and fun way to learn and to test your pediatric skills. It is a wonderfully realistic simulation of pediatric practice that provides 18 actual patient cases to manage from presentation to treatment in 5 different clinical settings: clinic, emergency department, inpatient unit, neonatal intensive care unit, and pediatric intensive care unit. More than 160 potential diagnoses are covered.

Each patient scenario begins with a chief complaint, and the user then chooses from modules that include differential diagnoses, medical history, physical examination, diagnostic tests, synthesis of the case, and treatment. The quality of the pictures, audiotapes, videotapes, and radiographs are excellent. Students and young residents especially can learn a great deal about taking a patient history, where to emphasize the physical examination, and which diagnostic tests are most useful (and which are wasteful).
