Teaching with Medical Simulations
Interview: Scott Engum, MD, director, IU/Clarian Simulation Center & associate professor of surgery, IU School of Medicine
Scott Engum, MD, directs the IU/Clarian Simulation Center. Dr. Engum joins Barbara Lewis in the Sound Medicine studio to explain how simulation centers are used to improve patient safety. In addition to directing the Simulation Center, Dr. Engum is an associate professor of surgery at the IU School of Medicine. If you’d like to look inside the IU/Clarian Simulation Center, here’s your chance. As part of the IU School of Medicine’s Mini Medical School, you can attend a medical student training session that we've just described. You’ll work with "SimMan" in the OR, and ER, giving him CPR and managing his vital signs. The sessions take place on Tuesday, September 21. See below to register. The Simulation Center is jointly operated by the IU Schools of Medicine and Nursing, and Clarian Health. It’s located in Indianapolis.
Behind a mirrored window, physicians and other medical professionals observe and facilitate the simulated scenarios.
