    Specialties: Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neonatology, Critical Care Medicine, Pediatrics

    Incorporating simulation-based medical education (SBME) into your clinical practice can increase safety, decrease medical errors, improve clinical judgment and promote self-confidence.  Much different than the traditional “see, do, teach” educational methods most familiar to learners, SBME fully immerses learners in a realistic environment that promotes the cognitive, behavioral and technical skills used in their clinical practices.  This allows learners to pull from their own personal experiences, in a non-threatening way, to analyze and troubleshoot issues that may arise.

    Through this intensive course, our multidisciplinary team will train healthcare providers at all levels of experience in the skills necessary to initiate a simulation program.  Learners will create scenarios based on their specific needs, execute those scenarios with practice using video, embedded participants and moulage for added realism, and then apply the debriefing techniques learned in the course.

    The course can accommodate nurses, respiratory therapists, physicians at any academic center or in private practice, nurse practitioners/physician assistants, other allied health specialists, and medical educators within specialty area(s) of pediatrics, pediatric intensive care, pediatric emergency medicine, neonatology, labor and delivery, and high risk obstetrics.
