Introduction Mass casualty incidents (MCI) are low-frequency, high-risk events that disrupt the day-to-day operations of medical centers. Day-to-day protocols are insufficient for effectively managing MCI events, creating a need to develop and test…

Breech presentation complicates as many as 4% of all deliveries. External cephalic version (ECV) is a procedure that involves the external rotation of the fetus through the mother's abdomen from a breech position into a cephalic position. It provides…

Purpose: Recently, the American College of Graduate Medical Education included medical decision-making as a core competency in several specialties. To date, the ability to demonstrate and measure a pedagogical evolution of medical judgment in a…

Introduction: Telemedicine is a growing practice with minimal training in US medical schools. Telemedicine OSCE (TeleOSCE) simulations allow students to practice this type of patient interaction in a standardized way. Methods: The Insomnia-Rural…

Objective Vaginal cuff dehiscence with evisceration (VCDE) is a serious, life-threatening complication of hysterectomy. Due to the high volume of hysterectomies performed in the U.S each year, it is likely that a practitioner will encounter VCDE…

The literature is lacking in theoretically grounded techniques to design interprofessional educational experiences that prepare students to function effectively in interprofessional teams dedicated to the management of complex geriatric patients. We…

Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a rare and rapidly progressing life-threatening infectious process. By progressing through a simulation involving a patient with NF and participating in a post-scenario debriefing, learners will gain the necessary skills…

INTRODUCTION: Interns are often unprepared to effectively communicate in the acute trauma setting. Despite the many strengths of the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) program, the main shortcoming within the course is the deficiency of teamwork and…

Heart failure is a leading cause of death worldwide. While heart transplantation is the most successful treatment for end-stage heart failure, the scarcity in donor hearts has ushered in the use of alternative therapies, such as the left ventricular…

Background: Medical decision making is a critical, yet understudied, aspect of medical education. Aims: To develop the Medical Judgment Metric (MJM), a numerical rubric to quantify good decisions in practice in simulated environments; and to obtain…

Background: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) developed plans for potential emergency conditions from the Exploration Medical Conditions List. In an effort to mitigate conditions on the Exploration Medical Conditions List, NASA…
