For students of health professions, can online simulations with virtual humans fulfill clinical hours without sacrificing quality curriculum? The good news is yes: students are successfully supplementing in-person training at their computer screens, leading real-life patient encounters through practicing relationship-centered communication.

To provide schools of health professions with effective evidence-based solutions, NORC at the University of Chicago and Kognito have partnered on new solutions and services.

Join us for a webinar where you will:

  • Learn about NORC and Kognito’s new virtual simulation that builds skills to identify and support adolescents at risk for multiple behavioral health issues, including substance use, depression, and suicidal ideation.
  • Hear from experts who developed the simulation and see how it can complement your clinical curriculum.
  • Access an exclusive preview of Kognito’s new conversation offerings in telehealth settings.
