The use of clinical cases in Medicine courses is traditionally tied to a complex, cumbersome manual process which usually requires time and effort to be carried on. Aiming to the optimization of such process, this paper presents a study of the applicability of a clinical cases-based computational evaluation system for Medicine courses. Such system includes the design, implementation and experimental application of evaluation tests for postgraduate students from healthcare area. It will be shown that the adoption of this computational system allowed the addition of new learning tools and features, and significantly reduced the work load required by the manual process, with satisfactory rates of acceptance by students and professors.
