Safe practices in simulation will be examined, including ethical, psychological, racial, and social justice considerations. Students will actively participate in running human patient simulators, designing moulage, and examining operational needs including budgetary and staffing components. Curricular alignment of simulations and student assessment methods will be reviewed, and current trends and future directions of simulation will also be explored.
