In the communication education at the Medicine programme, feedback plays a large and important role. In the usual setting, students practice conversations with simulation patients, during which a lecturer is sometimes present. Afterwards, the student will receive feedback from the simulation patient, fellow students, and the attending lecturer. Traintool is a programme in which giving feedback is made easy while the student is still being stimulated, which leads to a better process of giving and receiving feedback.
