"We installed Otis - the virtual patient into our lab computers for use by students in the Doctor of Audiology program at Nova Southeastern University. It is an excellent tool to assist students to learn hearing evaluation techniques. The Otis - the virtual patient assists students who are learning the concepts of masking, increasing their evaluation speed, and integrating diagnostic information for patient management. With Otis, students are able to practice what they are learning in the classroom and apply these techniques to the clinic. I highly recommend this system for student training."
