Summary of Activity for AY13

The HMS Academy Simulation Interest Group continues to serve as a resource to support simulation programming across the HMS community, and to provide a forum for collaboration across affiliated simulation centers.  

This past year (AY13) the interest group sponsored a Simulation Symposium as a major faculty development offering in the fall, organized with leadership from all HMS-affiliated simulation centers/programs.  A simulation Student Interest Group was also developed on-campus, providing faculty-supervised “on-demand” educational sessions at TMEC (offered in addition to course-based simulation programming).  These sessions also provided opportunities for senior students to develop as “teaching assistants” to support tutorial-based simulation sessions in the pre-clerkship curriculum.  

Quarterly meetings continue as part of a city-wide simulation consortium, held in collaboration with CIMIT and the Center for Medical Simulation.  This year also saw renovation of the HMS Simulation Lab, which will provide upgraded simulation resources as part of a comprehensive new OSCE/skills suite.

Into AY14, the role of simulation in pre-clerkship curricular reform will be a particular focus of attention. The Interest Group will continue to serve as a resource for sharing best practices in clerkship-based simulation, and to support new/future skills planning efforts in TMEC.
