BIDMC's Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center receives American College of Surgeons accreditation

" that appear via video. Instructors' observations and information collected through advanced sensors and computer equipment enable faculty members to provide detailed feedback on students' performances.

Up to 65 learners can be accommodated in a large teleconference room with the capacity to receive live media feeds connected to four different operating room endosuites. It also uses computers for specialized educational and instructional content that includes tutorials for basic suturing, the Virtual Patient Program, and access to a comprehensive video library.

SASC co-directors David M. Feinstein, MD and Daniel B. Jones, MD, FACS, bring years of expertise to the center. Feinstein ranks among the leading faculty at the Center for Medical Simulation in Cambridge while Jones is a leading advocate of simulation within the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and, in 2003, led the efforts by the Roberta and Stephen R. Weiner Department of Surgery to create the Minimally Invasive Surgical Skills Laboratory at the Carl J. Shapiro Institute for Education and Research.

"We want to impress on the BIDMC community that these resources, as well as our support with curricula and research, are available to learners of all levels and all departments," says Feinstein. He notes that since the ultimate goal of simulation training is to provide greater patient safety, "students and healthcare professionals can all benefit from practicing scenarios in simulation."

"In 2006 the surgical adage is no longer acceptable to 'see one, do one, teach one'," Jones says. "Today the expectation is practice, practice, practice and demonstrate proficiency, and BIDMC is leading this paradigm change in training and maintenance of skills."
