Going beyond surgery
The Applebaum Simulation Learning Institutes's efforts reach beyond surgical skills training to involve a complete range of health care professions. Programs have been conducted for hospital departments of
- emergency and trauma
- internal medicine
- medical education
- surgical technologists
Programs even reach out into the community to retrain workers for jobs in the medical field or encourage younger students to enter the field.
Unique to other training facilities, the Institute includes in its training programs the development of research-based objectives and metrics to measure educational effectiveness.
