If you attended the recent AACP Annual Meeting this year, you surely saw all the attention that games are getting as a way to help educate pharmacy students. No suprise, the rest of the medical community has also turned an eye to such areas. I was fortunate to attend Stanfords MedXEd conference a recently, and several companies were showcasing such products.
Most of the apps and platforms discussed were geared towards medical and nursing students. However, there is a large amount here that could be used in pharmacy education. Of note, I think the initial success some of these platforms are seeing, and their adoption by students, demonstrates the viable market of such tech in pharmacy education as well. I would suggest looking into these platforms as a possible tool to learn from.
