How the Competition Works

The InSimu - IFMSA International Diagnostic Championship is an online team competition. Check out how it works.

Teams of maximum 3

Teams of maximum 3 compete with each other in the Olympiad. All the members take part in the competition equally and the 3 members have to make decisions together.

Since you have to work and collaborate as a team during the competition, it's strongly advised to choose your teammates from the same city or even better from the same institution. Then it will be a lot easier to come together when the competition starts.

1 device per team

Once you have a team, you need to choose a team leader. A team leader is required only for one technical reason: the competition will be available only on his/her InSimu Patient account.
The team will be using 1 single mobile device (phone or tablet) during the competition. The app works both on Android and on iOS.

TIP: it's easier to use a tablet together as it has a bigger screen, therefore it provides better visibility for the team members. 

Limited time

The competition is 1 hour long and during this period, you have to work out the correct diagnosis of as many virtual patients as you can using the InSimu Patient app. The number of experience points (XP) decides which team wins the competition. In case of the same number of XP, time factor determines the winning team. XP calculation is based on 4 factors: correctness of the diagnosis, time and costs of the performed tests, and missed tests.
Considering the different time-zones, in the first round you'll have a time-frame of 24 hours to start and complete the competition anytime during it.

Countdown

The International Diagnostic Championship is coming soon.

"The competition was just glorious! You had to quickly run over your memory palace to diagnose 10 patients in just 60 minutes - that is, you have 6 minutes for each patient to put a correct diagnosis! It was a challenging and competitive activity because you knew that a hundred of other medical students, interns or maybe residents took the same challenge right with you."
