The roots of INSTRUCT are in the academic world. In 1993, Prof. Martin Fischer founded a working group for computer-based training for undergraduate and continuing medical education at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. The focus of this interdisciplinary working group was optimizing the learning with authentic cases and how such cases can help healthcare students in decision making. In 1994 the development of the CASUS virtual patient system began with the aim of developing an easy-to-use authoring system for educators and clinicians to create learning cases for their students.

Start as Instruct AG

INSTRUCT AG was founded in May 2000. It has gained appraisal for its innovative concept: the Bavarian Ministry of Economics successfully promoted the establishment of INSTRUCT AG within the scope of the “FLUEGGE” program.

Instruct gGmbH today

  • From December 2018 - January 2019 Instruct was transitioned into a non profit gGmbH
  • Close cooperation with academic institutions with research projects on national, EU and level.
  • By now, CASUS is an internationally distributed learning system for virtual patients and cases, which is used in Europe, North and South America.
