The Computer-assisted Learning in Pediatrics Program (CLIPP) is MedU's virtual patient program for the pediatrics clerkship.

CLIPPCLIPP's 32 interactive virtual patient cases are designed to encompass the learning objectives of the Council On Medical Student Education in Pediatrics (COMSEP) curriculum comprehensively. CLIPP, used mostly by third-year medical students, is an excellent learning tool for health care professionals.

CLIPP instructors should be aware that an fmCASES subscription includes 5 CLIPP and 2 SIMPLE cases, so they may occasionally encounter students who have had prior exposure to an assigned case.

Subscribers may also be interested in exploring the Culture in Health Care and Medical Home courses, developed to give learners additional exposure to complex issues such as culture in health care, family-centered partnerships, systems-based practice, professionalism, the doctor-patient relationship, navigating the health care system, and caring for children with chronic illnesses.
