About the Virtual Health Care Team®

The Virtual Health Care Team® was developed by the School of Health Professions at the University of Missouri-Columbia under the direction of Dean Richard E. Oliver.

The site contains a variety of cases of interest to health professionals. The topics include managing obesity, arthritis and exercise, and using a team approach to help older adults with complex medical problems. The cases have also been viewed by numerous people with particular medical problems.

All cases were written by faculty, by health professionals, or by students under faculty supervision. Cases are also reviewed periodically by the faculty.

Cases typically include questions for the user, external links to recognized authoritative sources, and references.

Faculty from other educational institutions may use Virtual Health Care Team® cases in their classes without charge after contacting us and obtaining permission.

All cases are based upon real events or upon a composite of real events. However, demographic and identifying information has been changed, and the pictures are usually actors.

The Health References pages contain collections of sites of health information, drugs, professional organizations, etc.

The Virtual Health Care Team® is a trademarked site. All content, text, images, and recordings are copyrighted by the Curators of the University of Missouri.

An editorial board determines policy and reviews the cases.
