William Maul Measey Institute for clinical SIMULATION and patient safety
The William Maul Measey Institute for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety (ICS) is an educational facility with two components: a Simulation Center that uses inanimate, programmable simulators to imitate physiologic and clinical conditions and a Skills Center that employs Standardized Patients (SPs) for both teaching and evaluation. The mission of the ICS is to facilitate the learning of clinical and procedural medicine for all practitioners while promoting patient safety.
The ICS is part of a curricula that encourages learners to develop procedural skills and enhance their clinical decision making process. Procedural task trainers, virtual reality trainers and high fidelity patient simulators are all available for use. Through the use of SPs, the ICS trains and evaluates students in the clinical skills of interviewing and examining patients.
