Simulation structure at Beaumont

Beaumont Emergency Medicine Medical Simulation curriculum is a three year program that consists of quarterly high fidelity simulation cases that spans our Residents’ tenure at Beaumont Royal Oak. Goals of the Medical Simulation curriculum are robust including providing education in the form of high-fidelity simulation, expanding interpersonal skills, improving leadership roles, strengthening procedural skills, and communicative abilities not only with Resident physician peers but also SLI staff who maintain confederate roles.

Your Emergency Medicine education will expand to newfound abilities through the use of high fidelity medical simulation during your residency training at Beaumont Health. Throughout your three years of residency training you will encounter multiple simulation related events that will strengthen clinical, non-clinical, cultural and other aspects of your training. Through the use of the Marcia & Eugene Applebaum Simulation Learning Institute at Beaumont, Royal Oak you will have access to the $4.5 million education facility. From individual to group simulation case scenarios state of the art equipment will be available to expand your education. As one of the most advanced medical simulation facilities in North America, the Applebaum Simulation Learning Institute aims to provide hands on application to improve communication, psychomotor, and cognitive skills for our Emergency Medicine residents. High fidelity medical simulation not only provides you with a breadth of knowledge but also a means to improve safety and outcomes for our patients. 

What makes our medical stimulation so successful you may ask? While technology is at the forefront of advancement, it is the humanistic aspect of medical stimulation that enhances your residency experience. From interacting with the simulation directors to the simulation staff to your peers in both team and “confederate” scenarios, cases bring forth a real world application that you can utilize in your upcoming shift. Medicine is evolving, thus it is imperative to have every opportunity at your feet to improve your residency experience. That complex medical case that was presented during your first medical simulation experience can walk through those Emergency Department’s front doors on your next clinical shift. Having that clinical, social, mental, cognitive skills fortified in a simulation situation only brings forth a greater understanding for what’s to come. 

Have you heard of our annual Beaumont SIMWARS? Beyond the medical simulation within solo and group cases, we are proud to present a tremendously highly interactive multi-case competition within Beaumont Royal Oak annually where both residents and attendings compete with unique team names and costumes/attires in front of their peers on a special March day. From superhero capes to dinosaur to pirate costumes, our residents and attendings engage in a lively, fun, challenging day of medical simulations. Furthermore you will have the opportunity to participate in regional and national simulation competitions. Simply put, comradery is at its finest during your medical simulation experiences as an Beaumont Emergency Medicine resident for the sole purpose of making you a more well rounded Emergency Physician. 

Simulation Structure

The Post Simulation Debrief is a crucial component to residency education as it consists of interactive feedback and real-time evaluation allowing for in-depth group discussion. Feedback allows Residents participating to identify weaknesses with the goal to improve gaps in knowledge in a safe and open forum. The Post Simulation scenarios also consists of lecture PowerPoints providing further details regarding the case discussed. Overall, Simulation provides opportunities leading to cohesiveness within a group of physicians and experiences strengthening leadership skills.

Beaumont Residents will participate in both adult and pediatric Simulation opportunities throughout their Residency education. From strengthening procedural skills to solving the diagnoses with the appropriate disposition, the Beaumont Simulation program aims to foster a culture of learning and Resident involvement. Involvement from both the Beaumont Simulation leadership along other Beaumont Emergency Medicine faculty further illustrates the commitment to the educational value of such unique scenarios to ready our Resident Physicians to care for all patients alike. 

Annually, our resident Physicians along with the Attending and Fellow physicians compete in SimWars. All competitors engage in exciting and challenging case scenarios in front of their peers. From unique costumes to multifaceted case presentations, SimWars has provided a sense of wonderful comradery and memories for the entire Emergency Medicine residency and department. Just as exciting, the Simulation Directors provide leadership opportunities for Emergency Medicine residents to not only participate via teams but also in the creation and implementation of cases. In addition to SimWars, PGY 3s quarterly lead Simulation scenarios run by junior Resident Physicians.
