The following virtual simulation promotes the application of knowledge required to perform manual susceptibilities in a medical microbiology laboratory.

Learning Objectives:

Select appropriate media and environment for manual susceptibilities on select microorganisms.

Perform manual antimicrobial susceptibility analysis.

Troubleshoot procedural errors in manual antimicrobial susceptibility setup.

Simulation Modality:

Virtual gaming simulation / virtual patient

Evalution/Validation:

This simulation’s scenario and script were formally peer-reviewed by two external institutions, then the final simulation was pilot tested by several students on a student testing committee then as part of the Virtu-WIL Student Program’s rollout.

Keywords:
