For Students

As a student of medicine, what is your greatest need?


Assimilating relevant knowledge fast while avoiding unnecessary information is essential to fast learning.   


Finding likeminded students who help you, rather than compete with you, can make the journey lighter.


Centering learning around solving a patient’s problem restores purpose and meaning to learning.


Write case studies from your own learning and experience and submit them for publication on Scope. 


Just knowing what to study requires guidance from those who preceded you.

Finding and gathering  knowledge resources can take up more than half your study time. 

Working in Scope, you will fill knowledge gaps and avoid restudying what you already know. 

Watching a lecture or video, or reading a textbook, or reading a webpage about a disease requires you to sift through a lot of what you already know, and a lot of what you don’t need to know, in order to get to the knowledge that fills your knowledge gaps. This wastes time and mental bandwidth. 

In Scope, if there is a word you do not understand, click on it and curated knowledge appears in a knowledge card within Scope. Fill the knowledge gaps; avoid repetition and information overload.

Scope’s team of doctors have curated the knowledge resources you need, that fill your knowledge gaps, and built them right into Scope, your student EMR. This is by far the fastest way to assimilate knowledge. 


Discussing cases together solidifies learning. 

Traveling this challenging road with friends makes the miles fly by. 

Discussing a patient case takes you to the next level of understanding. 

At the end of each case study you play within Scope there is an ongoing discussion. Participating in the discussion will embed in your mind what you learned while caring for your Scope patient, just as rounding on real patients embeds learning. In the discussion you will be pulled along by your peers to a deeper understanding and a higher level of motivation. 

“If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together.” –African proverb


Is medicine about diseases, or people? 

Knowledge gained while solving a patient’s problem is not easily forgotten. 

Solving your patients’ health problems is why you got into medicine.

Scope is an EMR; but, it is also a game. Our doctors, and your peers, have built hundreds of case studies into Scope, that turn Scope into a game. 

Play is all about practicing for the real world. Simulating the real world in a game makes learning medicine a joy. 

Scope is problem centered learning. 
Problem centered learning is superior because you: learn in the context and with the nuance of the real world, feel the anxiety and thrill of helping a patient (which improves knowledge retention), learn to recognize patterns, and build clinical reasoning skills. 


After you have learned it, teach it–by teaching what you have learned, you will never forget the lessons learned. 

Write case studies from your own learning and clinical experience and submit them for publication in Scope. 

If your case is accepted for publication, be sure to make your prospective residency sites aware of your publication. 

Want to be sure you understand a disease or disorder–teach it! Teach your friends by writing your own case study and send it to your friends to play on Scope.

See something in clinic you want to remember? Turn it into a case study you can repeat in Scope next month or next year–and send it to your friends so they can learn as well.

Think your case study is very good? If your friends agree, and give your case a high rating, submit it to EMRLD’s review panel. If we agree, we will publish your case for all users of Scope to play.
