In the general practice course at Copenhagen University, the students record videos of their consultations in general practice. Simulated video consultations were produced to support learning. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of adding simulated consultation videos to standard teaching. Final semester students (N=587) were assigned by the university to six groups and an increasing amount of learning material was stepwise applied. A questionnaire and a test video consultation measured the change in students’ ability to identify patient-centered elements in a consultation pre- and post-course. Introducing simulated video consultations did not increase awareness of patient-centered elements but demonstrated increased skills in evaluating clinical topics. These findings conclude that watching simulated video consultation before lessons for discussion increases students understanding of the epidemiology of diseases in general practice.
