Simulation and Virtual Patients in Medical Education
Start Date: 11/9/2012Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 11/9/2012End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description
Dr. D. Scott Lind, MD, professor and chairman of the Department of Surgery, Drexel University College of Medicine, will discuss how medical and surgical education has been traditionally predicated on a time-based apprenticeship model developed and adopted more than a century ago by William Stewart Halsted and how recent changes in healthcare, including medico legal, patient safety, time and cost issues demand a transformation change in traditional learning methods. He will also discuss how simulation represents the future of competency-based medical education and how it provides advantages over traditional learning methods. This presentation will review the history of simulation and virtual patients (VP = computerized representations of real patients) in medical education. Finally, Dr. Lind will present his team's VP research groups previous work demonstrating that VP interactions lessen student anxiety, improve student confidence, communication and examination skills. In addition, he will provide an overview of his group’s effort to create, validate and integrate several VP technologies into health professions curricula.
