An Interactive Platform to Enhance Knowledge and Understanding of Ovarian Neoplasm: A Pilot Media Program to Standardize Clerkship Education



Clinical clerkships vary in student exposure to patient types due to variations in clerkship location. Standardized clerkship training material provides opportunity to study virtually, particularly when required patient types are underrepresented. A platform which integrates diagnostic imaging, histology, and biomedical visualization supports developing healthcare professionals by providing supplemental material. This study explores this learning modality on student performance and perspective on e-learning. Data was gathered regarding student comprehension, based on standardized assessment performance. Additionally, student feedback will be collected on the interactive e-learning module’s content and visuals as opposed to a possible absence of specific patient types and outside media.
