List of all projects CROESUS – Clinical ReasOning skills Enhancements with the use of SimUlations and algorithmS

Coordinator Coordinator: Schwarz Daniel

Duration Duration: 2014–2016

The CROESUS project changes the traditional way of teaching and moves the clinical phase of medical education from traditional classroom teaching approaches to active learning.


The objectives of the CROESUS project are following: (i) To introduce innovative pedagogy methods using scenario-based learning tools, virtual cases and patients thus to enable future physicians and healthcare professionals to simulate important steps in the diagnostic and therapeutic process before exposure to patients. (ii) To transfer know-how and best practices from the institutions which have already gone through a successful implementation of authentic, motivating, competency-based learning styles into the medical curriculum. (iii) To link with the existing regional (Czech/Slovak) medical education network MEFANET and other European projects with similar objectives and use this wide community of students and teachers to disseminate the patient cases and project’s outputs more widely.

The project partnership has been based upon long-standing collaborations and awareness of each other’s work, and shared research interests of three institutions:
