Why Simulation?

Medical Simulation is widely becoming an important part of medical education and has become a popular fellowship among EM graduates. EMRA members who enjoy simulation, are involved in simulation either at the medical student or residency level, and/or want to pursue further education in simulation are encouraged to join the EMRA Simulation Division. Much has been accomplished since our first meeting at ACEP13. The division, led by a great team of resident and student leaders, is working hard to enhance member knowledge of medical simulation by providing access to various sim resources as well as increase member involvement through publication and volunteer opportunities.

Current Initiatives

  • Monthly newsletter - emailed through the listserv and archived on our site (see below)

  • Establish a Case Bank to be shared among EMRA members
  • Produce Simulation Guides to help sim enthusiasts perfect their skills in both the clinical and simulation arenas (i.e. debriefing, how to approach a case, etc.)
  • Compile a list of available domestic and international Simulation Fellowships
  • Provide opportunities to increase Member Involvement
  • Monthly newsletter - emailed through the listserv and archived on our site (see below)
