Med Healthcare Simulation

Name Title Credits School
MSME 651 Medical Education and Adult Learning 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course will focus on the principles of medical education and adult learning theory as they apply to teaching and learning in the three patient simulation modalities - standardized patients, patient simulations, and computer simulations/e-learning.

MSME 652 Teaching and Assessing Communication 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course will focus on the principles, strategies, and methods of teaching and assessing doctor/clinician-patient and healthcare team communication.

MSME 653 Standardized Patient Education 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course will review two (2) aspects of standardized patient education: 1) how standardized patients are used in medical education; and 2) how to prepare standardized patients for medical education and skills assessment. Students will also learn how to develop and manage a standardized patient program for the use in the clinical training of medical students and clinicians.

MSME 654 Educational Measurement 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course provides students with an overview of the principles of educational measurement, including the development of relevant assessment objectives, basic statistics, formative and summative assessment methods, scale construction, reliability estimation and validity issues.

MSME 655 Mannequin Based Simulated Education 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course will examine the principles and practices of teaching with part-task trainers, mannequins and hybrid simulators. It will review the history of the use of simulations (learning strategies) and simulators (devices) to train and evaluate performance, from the invention of Resusie Annie (the first modern patient simulator) to the present. It will demonstrate present simulator usage through video recordings, showing how part-task trainers (e. g. intubation heads, central line trainers, etc.) mannequins and hybrid simulators are used to teach and assess skills in health care educational programs. Students will become familiar with all current manufacturers if simulators, their products and their capabilities. Students will then design a mannequin-based training module from curriculum design to implementation.

MSME 656 Methodological Issues & Strategies in Simulation Research 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course provides students with an overview of research methods applicable to simulation-based evaluation and assessment. Students should have a basic understanding of educational measurement before attempting this course (MSME 654). In addition, students should be familiar with the various simulation modalities, including computer -based simulation, standardized patients, part-task trainers, and mannequins (MSME 655).

MSME 657 Patient Safety Issues & Patient Simulations 3 College of Osteopathic Med
Patient safety is one of the nation's most pressing health-care challenges. This course will familiarize students with the issues of patient safety in the health care system. It will examine the most common causes of medical errors, from clinical cased errors to systemic (hospital-based) errors. It will also familiarize students with the national organizations dedicated to improving patient safety. It will review the role patient simulations have played in creating a climate of patient safety.

MSME 658 Thesis Advisement I Simulations 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course is part 1 of a tutorial on the development of effective research design of a thesis in healthcare simulation. Each student will work directly with a faculty advisor on an independent research project, review the appropriate literature, and develop research questions toward a thesis project in standardized patient and/or patient simulation education.

MSME 751 Standardized Patient Case Checklist Development Workshop 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course will prepare students to educate with standardized patients. It will review how to prepare standardized patients for medical education and skills assessment, ho to develop standardized patient "cases", and clinical skills documentation. The workshop will culminate with students participating in a standardized patient development workshop, where they will be tasked with creating 2 standardized patient cases and appropriate assessment documentation.

MSME 752 Leadership and Management 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This course provides students with 1) a theoretical understanding of leadership and its management applications, 2) an assessment of their personal leadership style through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a questionnaire that provides a measure of psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions, and 3) skills and practice opportunities for simulation center team operation and academic leadership, and 4) tools for developing a simulation center budget and business plan.

MSME 757 Patient Simulator Workshop 3 College of Osteopathic Med
This workshop will prepare students to educate and assess skills with patient simulators, specifically part-task trainers and full body manikins. It will review how patient simulators are used in health care education, how to develop patient simulator scenarios, and provide basic maintenance of patient simulator scenarios, and carrying out these scenarios.

MSME 760 Practicum With Presentation & Defense of Thesis 3 College of Osteopathic Med
Working with faculty members, the student will execute a research project in Standardized Patient and/or Patient Simulation education and will be a culmination of Thesis Advisement I and II. The student will also defend the validity of the project to the Thesis Committee. Muck of the work for the thesis will be conducted independently by each student and will occur outside the context of structured class meetings. However, the course will meet regularly to provide collective guidance through the various steps in the research process, to cover specific material that is relevant to all student projects, and to allow for discussion and feedback from student peers.
