Reduce Learning Time and Ensure Strong Retention with PALMs

What are the challenges your faculty faces using the traditional didactic teaching and learning methods? PALMs, or Perceptual-Adaptive Learning Modules, from Med Insight LT are a revolutionary advanced learning technology using a patented combination of perceptual and adaptive sequencing based on both accuracy and speed of learners to improve learning and retention of information over regular didactic methods.

Developed by Dr. Phillip Kellman, the principal investigator at UCLA Human Perception Lab and his team of researchers and supported by detailed studies and research, the PALMs product is the only learning technology that offers adaptive sequencing based on speed and accuracy of learners’ responses with the ability to provide feedback.

PALMs offers existing, already developed suites, as seen below, ready for purchase. Or, in place of or in addition to purchasing already created suites, there are options to customize and build your own suites using specific institutionally-owned materials and existing curricula content.

Cardiology
This collection includes PALMs for training interpretation of clinical tests related to diagnosing cardiac abnormalities. Examples of such tests are blood pressure determination, 12-lead ECG, bedside cardiac ultrasound, and transesophageal echocardiography.

Dermatology
This collection trains the vocabulary for describing skin lesion morphologies, configurations and distributions as well as identification and discrimination of common dermatologic disorders. PALMs for mixed skin types as well as those specific to dark skin are included.

Histopathology
This collection trains users to distinguish among the basic pathologic processes of cell & tissue injury/repair, acute inflammation, chronic inflammation, and neoplasia as well as normal histology.

Obstetrics/Gynecology
This collection uses PALMs to train interpretation of common clinical tests and measurements made during gynecologic examinations, pregnancy and childbirth. Examples are interpretation of fetal heart rate patterns and colposcopy images.

Radiology
This collection aims to train identification of normal anatomy based on CTs, plane field x-rays, MRIs, and ultrasound images as well as training interpretation of pathologies present in these images.

Ultrasound
This collection focuses on training identification of ultrasound views (planes) and normal anatomical structures along with discriminating pathologies present in ultrasound images and video clips.
