Learn By Doing:

Burnout is a growing problem in medical schools, affecting up to 50% of students. Effective remedies are available and just need to be applied. Game-based learning delivers targeted, realistic, interactive narratives to help affected students learn to cope. Hands-on scenarios deepen medical student understanding of how to address and overcome burnout during game-play and beyond.

In the BurntOut game-based experience, you will take on the role of a 3rd year medical student and be challenged to:

  • Navigate scenarios to interact with patients, administrators, peers, and friends
  • Make decisions on how to best address challenges and avoid burnout
  • Build your health and learn techniques to overcome burnout
