Butt model and virtual patient to teach prostate exam
This is Patrick, a model butt combined with virtual patient software that helps train medical students on proper technique and bedside manner when giving a prostate exam.
"This virtual human patient can talk to the learner, expresses fears and concerns about the prostate exam, and presents a realistic patient encounter," says one of Patrick's designers, Dr. Benjamin Lok.
Patrick is currently under testing at Drexel University and the University of Florida.
