THE GAME

Co-designed
learning platform.

This game was co-designed with emergency medicine faculty and medical students. The goal was to create a game that could allow future doctors to learn systems approaches to patient management in a safe, low stakes environment.

Play together to save patients.

In GridlockED, players work together to treat and prioritize patients. This fosters collaboration and communication skills. 

Make low stakes mistakes.

This game allows players to grasp what a real emergency department (ED) is like, without the life-or-death stakes.
