The aim of the project was to develop and evaluate the prototype case for a series of online virtual patient cases focused on diagnostic error and improving the diagnostic process (DX: Diagnostic Excellence). It will be the pilot for a series of cases that teach students the cognitive processes and system‐related issues leading to diagnostic error, and will equip students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to mitigate diagnostic error. The pilot program, developed on MedU platform, is offered without charge and will supplement existing patient safety curricula.
