Description
 
The AAMC, working jointly with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH), the Association for Standardized Patient Educators (ASPE), and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) developed a survey in 2010 to better understand how medical schools and teaching hospitals are using simulation for education and assessment and determine the operational impact of simulation at AAMC-member institutions.
 
Since the Institute of Medicine released To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System in 2000 patient safety and medical errors have been the focus of many national initiatives. Simulation has the potential to dramatically change the way learning is conducted and assessed. This report presents the findings of a survey to assess the current state of simulation in medical education by defining how and where institutions are using simulation for academic purposes. The survey provided an opportunity to develop a framework for operational attributes of simulation programs and centers utilized by the academic medical community. The survey data demonstrates medical schools and teaching hospitals are exploring and adopting simulation as an avenue to enhance learning at all stages of medical education.
