Our curriculum includes clinical cases, tutorials, action planning, a learning community and a resource library. Learners have the option of obtaining CME credit if they choose.
Pre-Set Courses and Content Areas
Pre-set courses are available if you want to provide eDoctoring to your learners as a resource but donít want to create a customized curriculum or monitor learner progress. Simply provide the eDoctoring web address to your learners and tell them which course to register for.

The curriculum centers around interactive computer cases depicting patient stories. Learners are taken through a series of video clips of patient-physician encounters, interact with animated characters, and answer questions related to the content area. A resource library houses tutorials, which focus on specific core content areas and offer the opportunity for more in depth learning.
Action Planning Tool
Action plans help link online learning to actual patient care. Learners are given the opportunity to apply lessons they've learned in the cases to their own clinical practice. There are three steps to the action plan process:
Learners create an action plan and define a goal in the eDoctoring portfolio.
Learners consciously applies the action plan to their practice.
After applying the action plan to their clinical practice, the user returns to the eDoctoring website and completes an action plan follow-up describing the manner in which they applied their plan and factors that affected their ability to achieve their goal.
Learning Community Feature
The Learning Community is a forum where users can share their comments and reflections on recently viewed cases or tutorials, or on the action planning process with other learners in the eDoctoring course and faculty. Faculty members can play an active role in the Learning Community by commenting on learnersí entries, or they can use the forum to post their own reflections, provide input on the course content, or pose questions to their learners.
