The Clinical Simulation Center UMCSC Brown Bag Series!

To promote collaboration and best practices in simulation-based education and research, the UMCSC will be hosting a Brown Bag Series. The series is intended to allow all clinical instructors from across the University the opportunity to learn and share best practices in simulation-based education and assessment. The series will offer something for everyone, with a broad range of topics relating to simulation-based education in medicine. Presentations will range from projects considered “in-development” from junior educators/researchers to presentations about successfully implemented curricula from the CSC Core faculty. We anticipate each session will offer attendees the opportunity to gain insights as well as contribute to a dynamic discussion in a non-intimidating, friendly setting.

All faculty and staff are invited to attend. For more information please contact Deb Rooney, PhD, Director of Education and Research Clinical Simulation Center, dmrooney@med.umich.edu, (674-0102), or visit the CSC Brown Bag Series website at http://www.med.umich.edu/umcsc/education/brownbag.html

Brown Bag presentations and associated documents will be available at this site.
