Virtual Interactive Case Creation Club (VICCC)


VICCC is a club run by undergraduate medical students at the University of Toronto dedicated to improving medical education at the individual and curriculum levels through the creation of virtual interactive cases. VICCC is just getting started! It was founded in 2013 and is now formally recognized by the University of Toronto Medical Society (MedSoc).

VICCC offers the undergraduate community the opportunity and the resources to build an interactive case in collaboration with peers, residents, the PIE team, and other faculty. Our goal is to develop hundreds of cases to enable the development and reinforcement of an approach to common patient presentations at an undergraduate and postgraduate level. VICCC is also actively promoting student education and the development of students as educators through student-led review lectures of differential diagnoses and interactive case-based learning.
