Guided learning through practical experience

This program is a collaborative effort of the Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education (GCSIME) at the University of Miami and the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation, Education and Research (WISER) at the University of Pittsburgh. It is designed as an introduction to fundamental skills and abilities for delivering simulation-based healthcare education through a variety of techniques and technologies. The program emphasizes hands-on activities and active participation to maximize simulation-based instruction skill acquisition. The program is open to all medical professionals who are interested in improving their simulation-based instructional skills and is targeted at those with a background in healthcare education.

At the conclusion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Review and discuss methods of simulation, simulation technologies and simulation enviroments
  • Identify and incorporate evidence-based features that lead to effective simulation-based learning
  • Review basic design and development elements for constructing a simulation scenario activity
  • Identify simulation enviroment design requirements elements as they relate to required fidelity and equipment for simulation activities
  • Identify the elements necessary to use simulation for assessment and debriefing
  • Review debriefing methods for team training simulation activities
  • Implement fundamental strategies for debriefing healthcare teams
