What is Simulation?

Simulation experiences typically involve high-fidelity medical mannequins which can be remotely controlled to enact planned scenarios replicating various clinical events. The simulation experiences are video-recorded (typically with multiple cameras) for later review by instructor and students. Alternatively, ‘standardized patients’ (trained actors) may interact with student clinicians and portray various illnesses (e.g. mental health symptoms). The interactions between student and ‘standardized patient’ are filmed for review and feedback.
