The term “simulation” takes on many forms in the Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies. The Institution's simulation education expands to encompass many forms of technologies and innovative teaching modalities where learners can practice their skills in a risk-free environment.
Key contributors to the development of the Institute's training modules are collaborations with folks who also serve as instructors and trainees. One example of this collaboration is between the Institute and the School of Medicine’s Triple I Program. This program, which stands for Independent Investigative Inquiry, has an Institute selective which offers medical students during the summer between their first and second years the opportunity to conduct innovative curriculum development.
This past summer, students augmented the Institute's training library through the creation of the following curricula:
- Assessment and Management of Preterm Labor
- Working with Patients in Emotional Distress
- Sterile Techniques: Surgical Scrub, Gowning and Gloving
- Team Training: Interprofessional Management of Chronic Pain
If you’d like to learn more about these trainings, they’ll be accessible on the Institute website in the near future. For additional information about the Institute's Triple I program, please contact Megan Sherman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
