Internal Medicine Residency Education Management System
“Everything you need for improved IM residency education control and performance outcomes at your fingertips.”
Internal medicine resident training, simplified – and supercharged.
Our 24/7 online residency education platform gives internal medicine program faculty access to everything they need to assess, control, and improve training efficiency, activity compliance, and performance outcomes easily, online.
Program managers using Med-Challenger for adjunct training and assessment have reported improved scores, pass-rates, and learner compliance as well as reduced time requirements, labor, and surprises related to residency training.
With gold-standard question banks, assessments, and custom content tools built-in, Med-Challenger’s online residency education platform allows residency program directors to easily create, assign, and track resident knowledge assessment activities.
Program directors can quickly monitor activity compliance, knowledge proficiency, and exam performance predictors for all learners, groups, and locations – on one screen – from anywhere.
Everything is incredibly easy to use, flexible, and powerful in producing higher exam scores, identifying and fixing outliers, and helping every resident class matriculate on time.
It’s perfect for both traditional campus-based programs and clinical distance learning programs – large or small, the entire platform can be enabled for your program immediately without complexity or delay.
Everything works 24/7 via any Internet-enabled device.
Big power. Because “self-study” alone falls short.
More than just great content and testing, we give you total education control and performance analysis – and results.
You can simply provide self-study – or you can drive results.
Our group education product is a complete system, not a blind-eye “here ya go guys, good luck” box of online questions. We provide the education management tools today’s QBank-pushers simply don’t – or can’t.
We’re specifically aimed at group education outcome control and performance improvement, where knowledge and training systems are lacking, labor-intensive, or non-existent – and solutions need to be instant, hassle-free, easy to use, and effective.
