Annals Virtual Patients is an interactive CME- and MOC-accredited medical education program that uses virtual patient simulation to test physicians' decision-making skills. The online cases mirror real patient care decisions and their consequences.

Each simulation allows you to evaluate, diagnosis and treat a virtual patient. You and your patient will go down a distinct path based on each decision you make. Upon completion of each case, physicians may earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits.

19 challenging cases are available at a discount to ACP members and Annals of Internal Medicine subscribers. Cases are also available to internists, who are not members of ACP or subscribers to Annals of Internal Medicine.
