Emergency Medicine Simulation
Practice doesn’t make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect — Vince Lombardi
This is the cornerstone for the Department of Emergency Medicine Residency simulation teaching philosophy at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). Simulation education is a bridge between classroom learning and real-life clinical experience.
The Simulation Teaching and Research Center (STAR) has created ‘perfect practice’ simulation environments for our emergency medicine residents for over a decade. Simulation education has been most effectively incorporated into emergency medicine curricula through the use of time-proven concepts which start with defining the targeted learners, assessing their general and specific educational needs, defining learning objectives, and selecting the best educational strategy for achieving each simulation in Emergency Medicine.
