ConsultantLive, a diagnostic resource for health care providers, has launched an online game that tests the medical diagnostic skills of physicians and other healthcare professionals.

The five-week, interactive Diagnostic Champions' Challenge game is designed to add a competitive and fun layer to ConsultantLive's clinical and educational content. The site argues that games such as this one are effective tools for learning retention.

ConsultantLive, which is run by London-based UBM Medica (also owned by Gamasutra parent UBM plc), invites players to solve multiple choice diagnostic scenarios over the next four weeks, completing a new round of questions each week.

In the fifth week, the top Diagnostic Champions' Challenge players from each round will compete, and the top physician and non-physician winner will each receive a grand prize of one ounce of gold (currently valued at around $1,650).
