The noninvasive technique with the broadest application in cardiology is a scholarly bedside examination. We believe that this skill can be learned more effectively when simulation techniques are coupled with patient-dependent instruction, and that opportunities for simulation in cardiology and other medical disciplines are unlimited. To date, the Cardiology Patient Simulator is the most sophisticated of the medical simulation devices in use. It is hoped that our medical education experiment will further clarify the teaching and testing capabilities of 'Harvey', and define the appropriate application of this simulation technique to the training of physicians.
