Abstract
Our approach is to use the vHealthCare platform to present First Responder training scenarios through a game, Virtual Responder, designed to teach medical diagnostics and procedures. This mobile application will initially be developed for deployment on an Android tablet with a long-term goal of also being available through iOS operating system as well. Both military and civilian presentations of the training scenarios will be incorporated. By presenting various scenarios, individuals will have the opportunity to transfer their learning into multiple contexts, which requires higher-level thinking as opposed to rote memorization often associated with skills training.
