DIEM Cases

Welcome to the new age in medical education for Emergency Medicine!

The Digital Instruction in Emergency Medicine (DIEM) cases are online simulation "games" or cases, which allow the user to navigate through a variety of patient complaints and presentations. Similar to high-fidelity simulation, these cases are dynamic, contain multimedia content, and provide a realistic approach to patient management; however in contrast, users can complete these cases anytime and anywhere. All you need is internet access and a computer with Flash capability.

The DIEM modules are especially unique in several ways:

The DIEM concept was developed in 2008 by a team of experts in EM, medical education, and software programming, who all donated their time towards building an innovative approach to teaching and learning. After multiple rounds of testing and editing, the DIEM site is now available. We sincerely hope that educators and learners find these modules useful.
