We are developing an artificial intelligence system that enables veterinary students, clinicians, and scientists to simulate clinical scenarios in veterinary medicine. The design incorporates a physiological simulator, an expert system to model the emergency room experience, an agent to analyze user performance, and a user-tested graphical interface. The program is designed to present highly accurate medical information in the same way it would be available in a true emergency room situation. The program also models many diagnostic and treatment procedures that may be used to diagnose and stabilize the patient. This is a teaching tool that provides a bridge between textbook material and clinical practice where students can apply their medical knowledge without endangering the lives of real animals.
