Simulation Instructor Course Wednesday, August 5, 2020, 8:00 AM - Friday, August 7, 2020, 6:00 AM
Incorporating simulation-based medical education into clinical practice can increase safety, decrease medical errors, improve clinical judgment and promote self-confidence. Much different from the traditional see-do-teach educational methods, simulation-based medical education fully immerses learners in a realistic environment that promotes the cognitive, behavioral and technical skills used in clinical practices.
