Transformation in Medical Education

Transformation in Medical Education (TIME) is a healthcare simulation that helps doctors, nurses, and medical students practice patient interviews. The simulation was sponsored by a grant from the NIH.


Users can access different instructional modules via a web portal. In the simulation, they practice their skills by conducting virtual patient interviews in a variety of branching scenarios. After each scenario, users receive detailed feedback about their choices and earn special badges and rewards as they develop their skills.


As a research assistant on the project, my responsibilities included:

  • Assisting with design of instructional content and mechanics

  • Authoring research summaries for posters, articles, and presentations

  • Working with clients, team members, and SMEs to ensure that the simulation was engaging and met instructional goals
