Many medical simulation laboratories begin life after receiving a one time funding to cover the cost of building the physical structure of the lab and the purchase of clinical simulation equipment such as Human Patient Simulators (HPS). Funding for ongoing maintenance, repair, and updating equipment may or may not be included. Simulation labs however, need [...]
The Michael S. Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education (GCRME) is a designated Center of Excellence of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Established more than 45 years ago for the application of advanced technology to medical education for medical students, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, paramedic/firefighters and instructors, more than [...]

From doors being too small for beds to be installed to the wrong type of projector being installed in the lecture hall and from forgetting about HVAC for the server room to underestimating storage needs — each mistake is extremely costly [...]
Recently on the Society for Technical Communication’s Instructional Design and Learning’s Special Interest Group, Seneca College student Serena Zaccagnini explored how we “Evaluate Clinical Simulations in Medical Education”, where she notes that “the current model of medical training has been in use for at least a hundred years, but a developing movement for patient safety [...]
