Resource for Medical Students and Life-Long Learners

Cultural competence, the ability to appropriately meet patients’ cultural, social, and faith needs, is an essential aspect of whole-person health care. Tanenbaum’s SimClinic, a free web-based gamification tool, helps medical professionals build religio-cultural competence, professionalism, and ethics. Interact with patients whose religious concerns impact their care through simulated patient encounters. Learn how to navigate issues such as :

  • Faith healing  
  • Acceptance of blood products  
  • Informed consent  

 The SimClinic is for students in all stages of learning, from those treating religiously diverse patient populations for the first time to seasoned providers looking to enhance their respectful communication skills.
