An Introduction to Simulation: What’s It All About; Getting Started
May 17, 2012 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (CDT)
In this session, the presenter will explore the various applications of healthcare simulation in the industry today. From hospital-based education to university/school-based education, there are many applications for simulation-based training. This presentation will be applicable for those thinking of starting a simulation-based program or wanting to learn more about it.
Tom Dongilli, Director of Operations, WISER Institute
Tom Dongilli is Director of Operations for the WISER Institute. Prior to this position, he was the senior clinical simulation specialist for Laerdal Medical Corp. In that position, Tom would train simulation customers on the set up and maintenance of their simulators, curriculum development, and simulation center design and organization. In 1999 Tom helped design and open the Thomas Jefferson University Center for Medical simulation, where he served as the Chief Instructor. His primary responsibilities were to work with staff from different departments and help them create simulation courses based on their curriculum needs. Tom was also employed by MEDSIM Inc., a simulation company, where he worked with simulation center customers helping them start and improve their programs. To date, Tom has run thousands of simulation based training sessions. He contributes expert knowledge and experience in the practical design, implementation, maintenance and monitoring of simulation based medical learning systems.
