Cardiac auscultation is the difficult skill of listening to the human heart and using the sounds heard as clues in diagnosis. The CADI (Cardiac Auscultation Diagnosis Instruction) system is designed to tutor medical students and residents in both phases of auscultation: hearing the sounds and diagnosing illness based on what is heard. The system' s design draws on the case-based teaching architecture (Schank 1991), which in turn is built on goal-based scenarios and case-based reasoning (Hammond 1989).
