Mario Lumbreras-Marquez, MD, gave a special presentation on “Construction and utility of a low cost cordocentesis simulator” at the April meeting of the Boston Simulation Community Research and Education Meeting hosted at CMS. Dr. Lumbreras-Marquez is a Maternal and Fetal Medicine specialist from Mexico and a first-year graduate student at Harvard Medical School in the Master of Medical Sciences in Clinical Investigation program. He collaborates with Dr. Michaela Farber and Dr. Daniela Carusi in research projects related to postpartum hemorrhage at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. In Mexico, Dr. Lumbreras-Marquez had the opportunity to work in simulation-based medical education for fetal invasive procedures at the National Perinatology Institute where he was based.
Next month’s Boston Simulation Community Research and Education Meeting will be held at the MGH Institute of Health Professions on May 15th. The meetings provide a friendly and informal venue for simulation educators and researchers to present work-in-progress, problem solve and share best practices, acquaint each other with relevant ideas from other disciplines and connect with others.
