Introduction to Medical Simulation

simulation courseThis one-day course is an introductory workshop for clinical educators and faculty who use, or plan to use, simulation-based educational efforts such as in-situ simulations, procedural and team training.  Using lectures, demonstrations and interactive exercises, we will introduce participants to the basic techniques and nomenclature of simulation, including types of simulation, available equipment, audiovisual aids, logistics, challenges of simulation, and debriefing. As a group, participants will design, perform and debrief a simulation-based team-training exercise.

Debriefing for Healthcare Simulation
simulation courseThis one-day course is an interactive workshop for those who participate in any simulation-based education either at Simulation at Penn Medicine or in-situ (unit based).  Experienced facilitators will expand upon the basics of debriefing discussed in “Introduction to Medical Simulation”, including goals and methodologies of debriefing, as well as an understanding of the principles of Crisis Resource Management (CRM).  In pairs or individually, participants will conduct a pre-designed simulation starting with the pre-brief, facilitating and finally debriefing the event under the guidance of an experienced facilitator.
