SlideTutor is a new kind of medical educational system that
provides a virtual apprenticeship
Studies in our laboratory have shown that SlideTutor is highly effective. On average, students are able to improve their diagnostic and reporting performance by a factor of four after as little as 4 hours of use of the system. 
There are currently 300 tutor cases in two areas of dermatopathology: melanocytic lesions and inflammatory skin diseases. We will be adding over 1000 cases in a variety of other domains over the next 5 years, as part of a grant from the National Cancer Institute.
