The Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center transforms clinical medical education by helping educators to develop, implement and evaluate experiential curricula that advance patient care.
Our simulation center represents a living collaborative between all specialties and health care professions at Mayo Clinic, where the needs of the patient come first. It is through this lens — to best serve our patients — that our simulation center works to fully realize the benefits of simulation-based education, practice and research opportunities.
Medical simulation has important lessons and applications for all involved in the risk-laden environment of health care. It provides the ideal environment for teaching health care teams how to care for patients. By being allowed to make mistakes, learners can see the effects of those mistakes without harming patients. Simulation makes the learning environment come alive.
Medical centers of excellence must rise to the challenges of both demonstrated competence and scholarly analysis of efficacy via scientific methods, including the use of simulation in medical education.
Mayo Clinic has applied its renowned collaborative practice model to explore and advance simulation education across specialties and professional roles to better educate practitioners.
