  • Diagnostic thinking is an important core skill that all practising doctors need to master. Taking an accurate history is the first step in this diagnostic process so it is essential that clinicians develop good history taking skills.

    Developing these skills can be a struggle for medical students and it takes many years of training to perfect. Students usually learn and refine these skills by talking to patients or in simulation workshops, but these learning opportunities are often not available day-to-day.

    Essential Diagnosis is a game-based learning simulation that helps medical students and junior doctors improve their diagnostic thinking and history taking skills. The game is designed for 2 participants and simulates a conversation between a doctor and a patient to record the patient’s history. One player acts as the patient while the other acts as the doctor taking their medical history and diagnosing the illness or condition.

    The game enables students to practise history taking in a fun and engaging way without any external support. Simple, effective and practical.
