DOI: 10.3928/01484834-20101230-05

Current Research Interests:

In our setting, and simulation center, we are exploring two areas of interest:  1. Comparison of outcomes of simulation and traditional clinical experience and have research findings which is in the final stage of manuscript preparation, 2.  Development of faculty to use simulation as a teaching strategy, and have conducted three "courses" and several programs; these data have been presented, and are being finalized as a manuscript as well.  
We are also exploring opportunities in terms of use of simulation in interdisciplinary education within the various health professions on the campus (nursing, pharmacology, physical therapy, nuclear medicine and athletic training) in collaboration with adjunct groups such as dramatic arts and psychology.
