Goal: To introduce novice resident learners to medical education and simulation and promote their interest in pursuing a med-ed or simulation academic career.
Duration: Four weeks
At the end of this four-week period, learners will:
- Understand the basic principles of medical simulation and how it is applied in current medical education.
- Comprehend the principles of adult learning theory and how it applies to medical education.
- Apply adult learning theory by creating a simulation case(s) or other equivalent didactic activity.
- Learn at least two different debriefing strategies (plus/delta; advocacy-inquiry; rapid-cycling debriefing; blind debriefing; video guided debriefing)
- Develop an outline for a deliverable research or scholarship project using principles of educational research including developing a question, conducting a literature search and drafting an outline.
At the conclusion of these four weeks, participants will have:
- Developed one Simulation Case or equivalent educational activity on topic of choice.
- Facilitated 1 simulation or educational didactic including but not limited to monthly resident/medical student simulations, procedure laboratories, just-in-time simulations or in-situ simulations.
- Developed the outline for a scholarship or research project (within medical education or simulation).
