Clinical Simulation Center
The Clinical Simulation Center provides risk-free, hands-on educational programs. UMHS faculty and trainees use state-of-the-art simulators to learn the practice of medicine.
The University of Michigan Clinical Simulation Center (UMCSC) is an innovative instructional environment and learning laboratory providing challenging, immersive simulation training for physicians, nurses and other health care professionals at the University of Michigan. As part of the Department of Learning Health Sciences, the UMCSC plays an integral role in leading change through innovative and effective education and establishing assessment methodologies used in clinical care.
The mission of the Clinical Simulation Center is to advance best practices in healthcare education and improve patient safety through the development of effective simulation-based instruction, robust assessment, and rigorous research.
UMCSC is seeking Biomedical Engineering (BME) students the opportunity to gain practical experience, and apply engineering skills in the field of medical education and simulator development during a summer 2016 internship. Students will work with simulation technicians, physicians, and education researchers to develop novel simulators for the purpose of educating U-M health care professionals.
DLHS faculty, staff, and students attended the 2016 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare
James Cooke, Deborah Rooney, Edward Lockett, Jacob Seagull, and Waseem Ostwani attended the 2016 IMSH meeting that took place in San Diego from Jan. 16-20. The conference seeks to explore the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation.
DLHS faculty Deborah Rooney, PhD, will be giving a talk titled “Simulation-based education and the Family Medicine Physician: Applications for technical skills training” at the Annual International Family Practice Congress on November 4th. The keynote speaker for this event will be highlighting simulation-based education for technical skills training for family medicine physician.
Dr. Rooney's talk is titled “Simulation-based education: How could simulation be used for technical skills development in the future”. The invited speaker for this event will be highlighting simulation-based education for the graduate learner and physician.
