Description: The small group seminar has long been the mainstay of medical resident education. Second Life offers an opportunity to bring groups of avatar residents and faculty from different institutions together to share clinical cases, best evidence, and insights on patient management strategies. That vision led to a series of in-world seminars between the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry (UKCD) and College of Medicine and Baylor College of Dentistry and, later, UKCD and the University of California (San Francisco) School of Dentistry. Dental students and faculty from these institutions met in-world in a conference room created on the UK Island. The faculty involved in these sessions will discuss their experiences and feedback from their residents and speculate on the role of SL in medical residency training programs.
