This all-day workshop is an integration of the core workshops that are required for the Teach for UCSF Certificate in Simulation Teaching. Click the links below to register for each of the workshops for this day:

Part 1, Using Simulation in Medical Education: Why, What and How
Part 2, Using Simulation in Medical Education: Conducting and Debriefing

Led by :

Mindy Ju, MD and Shruti Kant, MBBS

During this workshop, participants will learn about the learning theory behind simulation in health professional education, and how to apply this theory to prepare and conduct effective simulation-based teaching. Following an introduction on learning theory and the characteristics of effective simulation, participants will work in small groups to create their own simulation scenarios using Kern'€™s 6-step model for curriculum development in medical education. Participants will then explore strategies to effectively conduct simulation sessions and facilitate debriefing. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to practice these strategies in small group exercises.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

Explain the rationale for using simulation in health professional education
List best practices for the use of simulation as an educational strategy
Create learning goals and objectives for your simulation curriculum and sessions
Design a simulation scenario with appropriate learning objectives for your learners
Develop skills to effectively conduct simulation scenarios and facilitate debriefing
