Upcoming Sim Courses & Latest Updates From One of the World’s Leading Simulation Programs: Jump & OSF Innovation of OSF Healthcare

From the earliest days, Jump Simulation leaders made the decision to focus its educational efforts on interprofessional education. That means Jump facilitators and faculty, including University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria professors and clinicians throughout OSF HealthCare, work together to develop courses tailored to team-based training. Today we share about the innovative medical simulation courses coming up from the OSF Healthcare Innovations team, as well as share the latest headlines from one of the world’s most leading simulation centers!

More than 88,000 learners have participated in interprofessional education events at Jump. The organization now has a two-year certification from Joint Accreditation to provide continuing education credits for both professional physicians and nurses learning or training simultaneously. Joint Accreditation establishes the standards for education providers to deliver interprofessional continuing education (IPCE).

“Anytime we can bring teams of different clinicians together, we do. In fact, as we look to prioritize curriculum, a major factor is whether it supports team-based learning.” -Ann Willemsen-Dunlap, PhD, CNRA, director of Interprofessional Education at Jump.
