Medical simulation provides a safe way for physicians to learn new skills and procedures without risk of injury to patients. It also allows for immediate feedback from peers and/or faculty observers.

The goal with simulation training is continual improvement in quality of patient care and safety through education, practice, and assessment while also focusing on enhancing teamwork and communication among interdisciplinary healthcare providers.



OBGYN residents at all PGY levels participate in simulation modules at the UAMS Centers for Simulation Education throughout training in order to be equipped to perform complex procedures and improve healthcare quality and safety.
