Boston Simulation Community Research and Education Meeting
CIMIT Boston Simulation Consortium Quarterly Meeting
December 13th, Tuesday from 5:00-7:00 pm
Center for Medical Simulation
65 Landsdowne Street, Cambridge, MA, 1st Floor

This meeting will focus on topics of interest to the greater Boston simulation community such as the upcoming Society for Simulation in Healthcare Annual meeting (IMSH), the development of a collective simulation website calendar for Boston area simulation centers and potential grant opportunities.

The Boston Simulation Community Research and Education Meetings provide a friendly and informal venue for simulation educators and researchers to present work-in-progress, discuss relevant ideas from other disciplines and connect with others with an interest in simulation. The meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Please join us!

Up-coming meetings:

January 10th:

Measuring Problem Representation Among Preclinical Medical Students Following Mannequin Simulations.
Clinical reasoning is an important skill for medical students to acquire during both their pre-clinical and clinical years. Based on the work on teaching problem representation as a framework for clinical reasoning, the purpose of this project was to develop an instrument capable of detecting differences between students who were trained to use problem representation versus those who were not.
