Researchers have been interested in promoting improved retention of medical knowledge through custom designed board games for a number of years (Bochennek, et al 2007, Karbownik et al, 2016, and Shaw et al 2013). Studies demonstrate at least a subjective medical student desire to continue to develop study methods like board games for routine use in medical education.
