BioMedTech Virtual Clinic is a collaborative effort between Kent State University, The University of Florida, and The Great Lakes Science Center to develop a virtual interactive simulation to research the use of virtual humans in a learning environment. The application utilizes an interpersonal simulator that allows users to simulate interviewing a virtual patient. BioMedTech Virtual Clinic recreates You, M.D., an existing interpersonal simulator developed by the University of Florida, with the addition of new features to incorporate different teaching methodologies. The data that will be collected from the use of BioMedTech Virtual Clinic will be used to analyze and research how people learn using virtual humans. This paper presents the design of BioMedTech Virtual Clinic and discusses the newly added features.
