The Arnold S. Goldstein Interprofessional Simulation Labs are the keystone of
our interprofessional simulation-learning program. Simulation-learning is considered a vital
component of experiential education and the hallmark of interprofessional
education and collaborative practice. Simulation in health professions
education is intended to creating a realistic representation of a situation,
process and environment in health care practice, utilizing a variety of
activities and technology ranging from low-technology role-playing to
high-fidelity human patient simulators. Simulation scenarios are designed
to replicate real-life clinical situations affording students a heightened and
safe learning environment without placing actual patients at risk.
Interprofessional simulations are uniquely designed to
engage Bouvé students from more than eight different health professions to
learn about, from and with each other to improve health outcomes.
Interprofessional simulations focus on developing core competencies for
interprofessional collaborative practice and promoting a team-based approach to
health care delivery.
