Description: A Clinical Simulation Initiative by the Association of Directors of Medical Student Education in Psychiatry developed a free database of online psychiatry teaching modules that include videos of simulated patient cases. This study describes two objectives: 1) to obtain data on student satisfaction and the modules’ impact on students’ confidence in disorder-specific knowledge, diagnosis, and treatment and 2) to assess reliability and validity of the student survey evaluating modules' quality and effectiveness. Survey items include educational value, general feedback, and confidence in disorder-specific knowledge, diagnosis, and treatment. Items are rated on a 5-point Likert-type scale, where 1=Strongly Disagree and 5=Strongly Agree. Comparisons between pre- and post-module student confidence ratings were assessed using non-parametric Wilcoxon signed rank tests.
