Computer Simulation Assessment Tools (CSAT)

Try your skills in a web-based clinical encounter.

One of the first web-based simulations designed for neurology and psychiatry, CSATs provide the opportunity for you to act as a clinician in an interview with a trained actor presenting a patient. Get real-time, personalized feedback on your performance, and see how your actions compare with the recommendations of subject matter experts.

Learn more after the simulation with links to peer-reviewed journal articles and videos.

As leaders in dissemination and implementation science, we strive to offer innovative CME activities that allow you to not only learn skills, but practice them in a life-like simulation

Many of these CSATs are paired with interactive learning modules. As part of our sequential learning model, we encourage you to watch an ILM and then try your hand at those skills in a CSAT.

We hope you enjoy this innovative CME experience.

The Depressed Patient with "Tiredness": Assessing Converging Causes of Fatigue

View a simulated clinical encounter with a patient and provide your assessment as to any presence of fatigue and related symptoms. You also provide a recommendation for an appropriate pharmacologic treatment strategy. Choose from a menu of treatment and discussion options that mirror the choices you typically face in an actual clinical encounter, and receive feedback on your performance relative to your peers.
