The new Automated Patient-Oriented Problem-Solving System in Pharmacology provides an online platform for problem-solving exercises, active learning, and interprofessional education in pharmacology. With the Automated POPS, students can meet remotely or in person. Breakout groups can run simultaneously or asynchronously. The system records extensive student performance metrics and provides instantaneous feedback. Attendees should bring a laptop or tablet to use to do a run-through of an Automated POPS exercise.
