UMCSC Brown Bag Series

To promote collaboration and best practices in simulation-based education and research, the UMCSC is 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 offers 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. Each session offers attendees the opportunity to gain insights and contribute to a dynamic discussion in a non-intimidating, friendly setting.

UMCSC Brown Bag Series is from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., and scheduled monthly on select days in the Clinical Simulation Center (located in the Towsley Center, G2400). The schedule and links to presentation materials are below. Please note: We anticipate documents will be available the week prior to the presentation.

All faculty and staff are invited to attend. For more information please contact Deb Rooney, PhD, Director of Education and Research Clinical Simulation Center via phone (674-0102), email (
