Free Healthcare Educational Multimedia Resources
The Multimedia Educational Resources for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) website provides a huge database of free tools for educators in a variety of disciplines. I searched for “simulation” in the health sciences section and found a number of free tools that could be utilized in medical simulation programs including:
- Assessing Blood Pressure
- How to Engage Students with Simulation
- Virtual Hospitals
- EKG Learning Games
- Trauma Simulation Scenario
- Pilot Simulation Program Templates for Web-SP
- And many more….
