Simulation based education is now a core component of resident training at the University of British Columbia. With training sessions during our boot camp, simulation education allows early exposure to complex clinical scenarios, and internal medicine procedures in a low risk, formative environment.
Currently, the program employees a number of different simulation modalities, including part-task trainers, theatre based simulation, and hi fidelity mannequins. All three major teaching hospitals are equipped with a simulation centre with a hi-fidelity mannequin, and case based simulation education is a regular part of academic half day.
During early resident education, all junior residents are exposed to part-task trainers to learn internal medicine bed side procedures, and are exposed to ultrasound guided internal medicine procedures.
For trainees that are interested in simulation based education, there is ample opportunity to participate on the simulation education committee to further develop the simulation curriculum, as well as address the ever changing educational needs of the resident body.
