Group I: Curriculum and Instructor-Led CourseActive Control1 Intervention
Participants first complete an online cognitive assessment. Once complete, staff email the electronic curriculum for participants to read. On a specific day, participants will go to the designated center to participate in an instructor-led course and simulated medical scenarios and complete megapode and online cognitive assessment. After a washout period of six months, participants return to the designated center to participate in simulated medical scenarios and complete the online cognitive assessment again. After a second washout period of six months, participants will take the online cognitive assessment again.
