The simulations developed in WebSP, named virtual patients, can be used for learning, feedback/and evaluation, at graduate and post-graduate levels or research for different projects. This paper describes the necessary infrastructure for implementing WebSp application, the methodology for transforming paper based cases into virtual patients and a short description of the WebSp application.
