The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) requires course participants to have completed the COVID-19 vaccine series and the COVID-19 booster to attend in person training. We will ask you to complete an attestation form stating that you are vaccinated in order to attend the course. A copy of your vaccination card is not required by CMS; however, you may need to show proof of vaccination for certain venues in Boston during your stay.
Please visit City of Boston: B Together and Commonwealth of Massachusetts: COVID-19 Updates and Information websites for more information about current local requirements.
The November 6-10, 2023 course will be offered in person; however, this course may be converted to online delivery depending on coronavirus travel restrictions. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
In these rapidly changing times, the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) is innovating to meet the challenge. This flagship educator course is now updated to focus on helping participants make a significant, measurable impact on their organization. Participants will learn to work practically and strategically to translate simulation into gains for their learners, colleagues and organization.
To leverage your investment in this course and position your work to have the greatest impact, we will ask you to do some work before you arrive. To get buy-in and support for your program, we will help you identify a real problem that can be addressed with simulation (e.g. patient safety issues, curriculum challenges). We will then integrate your questions and challenges about how to address this organizational problem through interactive small group work.
Participants in the course can expect the exceptional educational experience that the Center for Medical Simulation is known for. Each course will feature several CMS faculty, who will work with learners in small groups to develop curriculum to guide their simulation program, to learn Debriefing with Good Judgment©, and to design simulation courses.
We look forward to working with you in Boston!
The course will take place over 5 consecutive days. It is our belief that this intense learning experience is best accomplished with continuous, individualized mentoring from highly experienced CMS faculty and the development of a peer-led community of practice. The course combines didactic and experiential learning with practice and feedback. Participants will run and debrief simulation cases and receive coaching and feedback on debriefing skills from leading debriefing experts. Days begin at 9:00 AM and end at approximately 5:00 PM US Eastern time.
