Advancing Education and Healthcare through Simulation.
Our mission is to provide high quality, safe, culturally competent and comprehensive education through simulation.
We use simulation to promote comprehensive, state-of-the-art emergency clinical care, education, and research. We strive to train the next generation of health care providers and medical education leaders in education theory, research, the use of quality improvement for patient safety, and how to create a high-quality health system that values teamwork and communication to continually enhance patient care.
The Simulation educators provide experiential learning at all our clinical sites and educational programs. Our two primary simulation centers are the Simulation Teaching and Research (STAR) Center at The Mount Sinai Hospital and the Center for Advanced Medical Simulation (CAMS) at Mount Sinai West. In addition, we offer simulation training in classrooms, smaller centers, and in situ at all of our clinical locations.
We offer two fellowships: The Simulation and Medical Education Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital and the STAR Center, and the Simulation Fellowship at Mount Sinai West and CAMS. Our simulation faculty are regional and national leaders in education with leadership positions in the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine’s Simulation Academy. We have a strong history of research and grant work in medical education, and publications ranging from engineering studies to curricula, and we continue to contribute to the medical literature on simulation and education.
