Boston Simulation Community Meeting at MGH on April 8th

Posted by

Please join us for the Boston Simulation Community Meeting on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 from 5:30-7:00 at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

The meeting’s focus will be on how to integrate simulation into an existing medicine residency program.  Paul Currier, MD will present and seek your input on: “Can you do simulation for 184 residents a year?”

Description:  Work from the Department of Medicine at MGH will be presented to facilitate a discussion on how to develop and run simulation and debriefing for a large group of trainees.  The challenges and successes of the group will be explored with a desire for input from the Boston Simulation Community.

mgh Directions to the Massachusetts General Hospital.

Once you get to MGH, the meeting is in the Bigelow Amphitheater: it is located on White 4 (room 418).  Enter the MGH main lobby, walk straight ahead for 50 feet, then look for the White (A) elevators (near Coffee Central) to the 4th floor, when you leave the elevator lobby, turn right and the Bigelow Amphitheater is there.
