About ImageSim


To provide a state-of-the art, evidence-based online education system that promotes effective and efficient skill development in the diagnosis of medical images.


Blending clinical, academic and philanthropic values, ImageSim aims to:

  1. Emphasize course content that addresses known knowledge gaps for practicing health care professionals.
  2. Increase health care professionals’ accuracy in the interpretation of visually diagnosed tests with the goals of reducing medical error and improving health outcomes.
  3. Support global access to this education system for health care professional learners, with subsidized access to the developing world.

ImageSim simulates the presentation of medical images just like you would get them in clinical practice. It also emphasizes deliberate practice such that the learning system provides hundreds of case examples and as you practice interpreting images you get immediate feedback after each case. While acquiring mastery for these images would take years to acquire via clinical practice alone, this learning system can potentially help achieve this in just a few hours.

ImageSim has been uniquely designed for people with busy schedules – access the system 24 hours/day, 7 days a week.
