The American College of Surgeons re-accredited the UM Clinical Simulation Center for a full three-years.
The new iSim space, available 24 hours a day, is the answer to students, staff and faculty who need to use the CSC simulation stations but can't always schedule a visit during regular hours.
The Clinical Simulation Center Research Committee is pleased to announce it has awarded a total of $30,000 to support two research projects for the 2016-2017 cycle.
Dr. Deborah Rooney publishes research on validation of performance measures from a neurosurgery simulation model
Dr. Rooney's research evaluates the evidence for use of the novel neurosurgery simulator. The article was recently published in Surgery.
This significant expansion of the Clinical Simulation Center in the Towsley Continuing Education Building will be a state of the art addition dedicated to independent learning combining computer based instruction and assessment with simulation based learning for medical students, residents, fellows, faculty, nurses and all UMHS staff.
Please visit the Request for Proposals page to learn more about this funding opportunity.
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.
