Misdiagnosis teaching and assessment tools

we use such simulations for our critical care clerkship.  unfortunately,  there are insufficient resources to re-drill them until they "get it right" but it is fascinating watching the cognitive traps and errors the students get into and how they (sometimes) get back out.  We run three sims on different  subjects (hypoxic resp failure, hypercarbic resp failure and septic shock and are trying to add more but again limited resources).  they are graded on the final one on their performance as part of their overall grade for the clerkship.

Does anyone have details of teaching programs that are similar to what airline pilots have to go through in simulation training.

Perhaps case studies that end in correct diagnoses that students can do time and time again to hone their diagnostic skills.

Something that is a little more complex and challenging than a multiple choice exam.

I would be interested to have details and maybe even people to contact.

Many thanks,

Robert Bell
