Summary: HyperClinic is an interactive multimedia program appropriate for undergraduate microbiology students majoring in the health sciences or for medical students studying clinical microbiology. It is used very differently in the two modes. Allied health students are asked to evaluate a realistic case study that includes a patient history and description of signs and symptoms and to analyze the results of physician-ordered clinical tests to reach a diagnosis. Medical stude ...show morents will evaluate a case study scenario and then decide which clinical samples should be taken and which diagnostic tests run. Immediate feedback and prompts help the students evaluate their decisions. Animations and movies provide detailed information on how the clinical tests are conducted, providing the undergraduate with an excellent introduction to a clinical lab and providing a solid review for the more experienced student.

New to This Edition
- This new version includes 105 case studies!
- Over 200 pathogens are profiled with information about transmission, virulence, characterisitcs of the organism and its habitat, incidence, and detection.
- 46 diagnostic tests are now covered with animations and videos available to help explain the underlying process and procedures involved in performing the tests.
- The new, user-friendly interface makes it much easier for students to navigate through the exercises.
- Most case studies are organized according to the organ system affected--Respiratory Tract, Central Nervous, Blood and Lymphatic, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, and Skin. Additional case studies are available with no cues to the diagnostic path to follow.
- Actual laboratory data and results provide realistic exposure to the clinical laboratory for a cost-effective clinical experience and a "real world" supplement to classroom learning.
- Two modes of exploration allow the student to either evaluate the case study in terms of ordering diagnostic tests appropriate to the situation or to evaluate existing test results to reach a diagnosis.
