SOMESICS - Virtual Patient Challenge


Acerca del evento


The SOMESICS is pleased to invite you to join its representative team of medical students to participate in this important event.

The Virtual Patient Challenge began in Mexico, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of SOMESICS and BODY INTERACT.

It was created to promote an academic activity with a competition feeling in which the participants could demonstrate their diagnostic skills, management and integration of knowledge in the care of a virtual patient.

This year SOMESICS invites all our partners and friends from around the world to participate in carrying out the first event for the use of virtual patients worldwide on three continents simultaneously.

We also want to invite you to break the world record of participants imposed in India last year with 40 participants.


  • Each team must have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 members.
  • The maximum academic level for team members must be medical school undergraduate. 
  • Each team must have at least one "coach" who will act as an advisor during the event and will support the debriefing activities after the scenarios.


  • During the SOMESICS 2020 virtual congress, each team through video conference and virtual access to the platform must solve three scenarios that the organizing committee establishes.
  • The team will name one of its members as the person in charge of opening and interacting with the patient from their computer or tablet, and together they will solve the case.
  • All teams members must be present for a pre-briefing of the cases to be solved using zoom video conference software.
  • Each team will work into virtual rooms, and at the end of the time of each scenario a professor or coach will grant the debriefing to the team members, and they will continue with the next patient until completion all three virtual patient scenarios. 
  • The team with the highest score and no penalties * will advance to the next round in order to become the world champion. 

The decision of the organizing committee and judges of Virtual Patient Challenge are final, and any unsportsmanlike conduct will be sanctioned with the expulsion of the team from the event.
