NYIT Launches Nation's First Graduate Degree Program For Health Care Simulations

Old Westbury, N.Y. (February 17, 2012)   ΜΆ  NYIT’s New York College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM) has launched the nation’s first graduate program focused on human and robotic patient simulations.

The program will prepare professionals to educate, develop, and manage patient simulation and patient safety programs at hospitals and medical, health professions, and nursing schools.
 
“Patient simulations are increasingly used in health care education to teach and assess clinical and professional skills,” said Anthony Errichetti, Chief of Virtual Medicine and Director for NYCOM’s Institute for Clinical Competence, known as the ICC.
 
Established in 2005, the ICC’s patient safety programs train medical and nursing students using state-of-the-art computerized mannequins as well as actors who portray patients with medical problems.  The training is designed to help prevent serious medical errors in diagnosing, treating, or monitoring patients correctly. 
 
“In hospitals and ambulatory settings, simulations help clinicians practice and retain their skills and ensure patient safety,” Errichetti said.  “Our goal is to educate physicians and health care teams in the best practices of their professions. We want to help them save lives and protect their patients.” 
 
Scheduled to begin in the fall semester, the Master of Science in Health Care Simulation will include online courses, hands-on workshops, and faculty advising by national experts.
