Center for Medical Simulation Announces 2014 Simulation Instructor Workshops in Australia

Posted by

Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) faculty will be heading to Australia early next year to teach its internationally recognized Institute for Medical Simulation (IMS) “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” Simulation Instructor Workshop. The workshops will be held during February and March 2014 at the Australian Institute for Medical Simulation and Innovation (AIMSI) in Sydney, Western Health’s Sunshine Hospital in Melbourne and Mater Education in Brisbane. Dates and host site contact information are listed below.

Taught by CMS’ Harvard faculty, the Simulation as a Teaching Tool Workshop is a 4-day intensive immersion in healthcare simulation that is specifically designed for those educators seeking to develop high quality simulation programs. It covers all the high level elements and concepts involved in using simulation as a teaching tool.

Drawing on the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning, and organizational behavior, participants learn how to teach clinical, behavioral, and cognitive skills through simulation. Participants explore simulator based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains.

The daily formats vary and include simulation scenarios, lectures, small and large group discussions, and practical exercises with feedback. Ample opportunities are provided for networking and sharing experiences. Attendees join a growing community of Institute graduates who are positioned as leaders in the field.
