Simulation Based Learning

Immersive and simulation learning serves as a bridge between classroom learning and real-life clinical experienced. Using simulation technology in true-to-life medical settings, learners are free to built on their current knowledge base and develops important clinical skills before they work with real patients.
"Simulation" is a set of techniques – not a technology per se – to replace or amplify real experienced with planned experienced, often immersive in nature, that evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in a fully interactive fashion.
"Immersive" imparts the sense that participants have of being immersed in a task or setting as they would if it were the real world. While seamless immersion is not currently achievable, experienced shows that participants in immersive simulations easily suspend disbelief and speak and act much as they do in their real jobs.
"Applications" of simulation related the intended objectives of the activity to specific target populations of participants and to specific types of simulation and curricula. Immersive and simulation techniques address many gaps in the current system of training and assessment, providing focused learning experienced that cannot be readily obtained using traditional techniques or in real patient care situations.
