Healthcare Simulation is the modern way to educate and train healthcare professionals to master cognitive, technical, and behavioral skill sets through technologically advanced crafted experiences. This style of experiential learning enables professionals and learners to practice and test their profession while building confidence in their abilities, prior to working in real world scenarios.
Not only [...]
Paul Pribaz, VP of Simulation Administration for Jump Simulation in Peoria, IL and Chair of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare Technology Committee recently wrote in to share about a the “first-of-its-kind” engineering design challenge later this year. The program invites bioengineering students to pair up with simulation practitioners and other innovators to find solutions to current [...]
Walking through the exhibit hall at IMSH this year, one thing is clear — VR (virtual reality) is now upon healthcare simulation. A pleathora of new companies have joined industry leaders with the development of new software applications to push the boundaries of healthcare training into simulated virtual spaces. We don’t just mean iPad drag [...]
