Gordon Center Curricula
At the heart of the Gordon Center is the mission to save lives with education, innovation and simulation. With that aim, the Gordon Center developed a series of curricula for healthcare providers and students around the world to improve patient outcomes and save LIVES.
The Gordon Center offers various training programs such as cardiology, and emergency medicine on blending learning platforms, a combination of online interactive educational materials along with face-to-face classroom methods. This format allows students to control the place, path, or pace of their learning. In addition, material and tutorials used by the Gordon Center are based on the latest national surveys and guidelines from certification boards such as the American Academy of Neurology and American Board of Emergency Medicine.
But what makes Gordon Center curricula different are the realistic "case-based,” multimedia scenarios that emphasize humanistic aspects of medicine, such as communication skills, bedside manner and medical ethics, in addition to diagnosis and management. Innovative tools are incorporated in the learning experience and include simulations, scenarios, videos, interactive graphics, animations, diagnostic images and, in various courses, hands-on practice with Harvey®, the cardiopulmonary simulator.
Upon completion, students of the Gordon Center curricula will be better prepared to diagnose and treat a variety of clinic conditions and be more confident in their practice.
