  • A few months ago, I used your PRIIM@ program to prepare for the OIIQ exam. Like many other people, I left the exam room a bit apprehensive about not passing. But yesterday, I got my results. I passed! If I ever get the chance to do so, I will tell others to use your program because I loved it and it helped me for sure…

  • The serious gaming is really interesting. It’s a very original way to test what we know.

  • With the suggested reading and the theory and practical exercises, PRIIM@ helped me see if I had gaps in my knowledge and know where they are.

  • It’s not just reading on my own. Someone reads to me too, so it’s easier to stay focused and listen. It’s like having a prof at home all summer explaining things and asking questions. The games are fun and varied. It’s a good concept for integrating the material. Providing explanations of the right and wrong answers is ideal for understanding better.

  • I liked that there are lots of questions and exercises to do. That’s when I learned the most about answering questions and developing my clinical reasoning. Also, the fact the program is online and available 24/7 let me study at any time, unlike the study groups that required me to travel and where my progress depended on that of others.

  • The visual elements were very attractive, colourful and interactive, which was important for me. Plus, the auditory elements helped me concentrate.

  • The experience was very enriching and relevant. It was a very reassuring exercise in terms of clinical skills and judgments.

  • Very interesting to use. The information is relevant, enriching; it helped me reinforce what I had learned earlier and do a very nice review.

  • I think it’s a fun way to learn and firmly ingrain our knowledge.

  • It taught me goals that I can put into practice. It’s a very good review.

  • Varied, fun, lively and interactive learning methods!

  • I like the fact that, for the theory part, the wrong answers are explained, even if I got the right answer. That helps me to better assimilate the information.

  • It’s well done, very colourful, well documented and well explained.

  • I liked that I could go at my own pace and I always had the impression that the clinical situations were real.

  • I really liked the serious gaming. It’s an interesting way to test what we know.

  • The modules for the theory part are very user-friendly and very well structured.

  • Not only did it help me to review, it helped me learn something new.

  • With the suggested reading and the theory and practical exercises, PRIIM@ helped me see if I had gaps in my knowledge and know where they are.
