Hi. I’m looking for good examples of gaming technology applied to Health science education.  If you have a successful implementation of gaming technology in your education programs, please send me links to information about it.

Hi Boyd.  Below is a link to a Google+ Hangout On-Air session we recently did at A.T. Still University of Health Sciences on how games are being used within the School of Osteopathic Medicine - Arizona (SOMA) program.  The session covered 3 types of games.  (NOTE:  Skip to ~4'30" to get to past the intro and into the content).  

1) In Class Use Case - Audience Response Game Show for Patient Safety (Tool Used - Bravo
2) Self Study Use Case - Nonlinear Branching - Virtual Patient (Tool Used - Decision Sim)
3) Mobile Use Case - Virtual Patient - Patient Safety (Tool Used - Prognosis)

Hope this is useful.

Hi Boyd,


Early this year at UCSF we held a Gaming & Learning Symposium during which individuals from UCSF, Stanford, UC Berkeley and industry spent an afternoon sharing their experiences, projects and perspectives on the application of gameful or game-based approaches to health and health professions education. One of our colleagues here at UCSF, Christian Burke (, is our local expert and is working on several projects in this area.
