SUMMIT - Stanford University Medical Media & Technologies
Stanford University School of Medicine
George & Dolores Eccles Genetics Institute Auditorium
Simulation can represent many situations in the real medical world: physician-patient dialog, physical examination, surgical procedures, work flow in the clinic, crisis management; as well as resources for basic medical teaching: cadavers, physiology labs. These simulated situations and resources support the development of a new mode of teaching and learning that encourages individual exploration and collaborative learning. At the same time, simulations provide the promise of a comprehensive standardized exposure to a set of clinical cases and labs that augment the opportunistic clinical experiences current in today's hospital wards. A future possibility is standardized assessment through the use of simulators. In this talk, I will present a sampling of simulators, discuss the underlying technology, indicate their integration into the curriculum, and present assessment where available.
Parvati Dev has been Director of SUMMIT since 1990. SUMMIT explores innovative applications of computing in the medical curriculum. In addition, she has been a Senior Scientist in the Medical Informatics Division at Stanford University since 1992. Dr. Dev received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1975.
The Priscilla M. Mayden Lecture was established by her friends and colleagues, recognizing her service to the University as Director of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library.
