IMSAL is proud to announce it will host a medical simulation instructor course taught by faculty from the Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) a global leader in the field of healthcare simulation. The course will be held April 24 -27, 2012 at the IMSAL center located on the campus of Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx. This will be the second time for IMSAL to host the course. IMSAL first hosted the course in January 2011, which sold out well in advance and was enthusiastically received by the course participants.
Titled “Simulation as a Teaching Tool,” this course is a 4-day intensive immersion in healthcare simulation for those educators seeking to create high-quality healthcare simulation programs. The course covers high level elements and concepts involved in using simulation as a teaching tool. Drawing on the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning and organizational behavior, participants will learn how to teach clinical, behavioral and cognitive skills through simulation. Participants will explore simulator-based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains. Daily formats include simulation scenarios, lectures, small and large group discussions, case studies and practical exercises with feedback.
