Use of Simulation for Education and Assessment in Dermatology
Tuesday, March 05
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Claudia Hernandez, MD, FAAD - Handout
- R. Benjamin Aldridge
- Amit Garg, MD, FAAD
- June K. Robinson, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Identify different methods (virtual reality, standardized patients, etc.) used to develop and deliver simulated clinical scenarios.
- Assess simulation techniques to determine an examinee's competence in a clinical or procedural skill.
- Measure the effectiveness of the simulated educational scenario.
Simulation is a rapidly growing healthcare field used to assist in the education and assessment of medical trainees. Simulation includes a wide range of techniques (standardized patients, moulage, computer-based exercises) that reproduce a medical scenario allowing trainees to practice in a safe environment. The ultimate goal of these activities is to improve health education and patient safety. Simulation offers educators the opportunity to schedule defined learning experiences, and repeat certain scenarios until competence is achieved. This session is aimed at educators of medical students and residents and will focus on dermatology simulation learning experiences.
