Those who educate health informaticians are charged with keeping courses innovative in a quickly changing specialty. This need prompted the development of a course which simulates information systems design. Students learn as they perform the role of health informatics consultant. The simulation experience becomes more profound with the inter-professional student population, introduction of object-oriented techniques, and skillful incorporation of Second Life, the venue for simulation of real-life tasks necessary to design an information system.
