If you are not, you will need to complete a health questionnaire, wear your mask at all times and social distance from others.
Masks are required for everyone in indoor campus spaces.
The course is a full day of immersive simulation education. It has been designed to accommodate between 4 and 6 participants who will be facilitated by a minimum of 2 faculty members. Participants be familiarized with the high-fidelity mannequin
in the simulated peri-anesthesia environment and will be asked to manage realistic anesthesia-inspired critical events.
The simulated scenarios will focus on the process of decision-making in anesthesiology. In addition, it will also cover aspects of crisis and resource management including communication and teamwork skills. Participants may also be asked to participate in the scenarios as co-workers or other OR staff. State-of-the-art audiovisual equipment is used to enhance the event debriefing which takes place after every simulated event. This course is NOT an assessment where candidates may pass or fail. It has been designed to fulfill one requirement of the American Board of Anesthesiology's (ABA) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology. Participation in the course, along with completion of the ASA online evaluation and follow-up survey, will satisfy the MOCA 2.0 Part IV-Improvement in Medical Practice.
