Pediatric Global Health Simulation
November 20, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As interest in global health grows, clinical experiences in resource-limited settings are becoming a more frequent part of medical training. However, the practice of medicine in these contexts is vastly different from that with which we are familiar, requiring a broader set of procedural skills and fund of knowledge. Therefore, residents traveling abroad may feel unprepared or overwhelmed when faced with common clinical scenarios in resource-limited environments.
To help mitigate this, we have developed a Pediatric Global Health Simulation Curriculum to expose residents and students interested in global health to frequently encountered disease processes in children, their management, and associated procedures. The next session is scheduled for TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2018 from 1-5pm. It is geared towards medical students in the application or individualization phases and residents/fellows who have practiced or are planning to practice pediatrics abroad. Pre- and post-surveys will be administered to assess the effectiveness of the curriculum. Groups will also be observed for time-to-critical-actions in each simulation scenario. Participation in the session and/or the surveys is completely voluntary. There will be no identifying information saved, and all surveys will be destroyed after data entry.
Note: All residents planning to do the Pediatrics rotation in Malawi are required to take this training.
Please RSVP by the link below by NOVEMBER 10, 2018. We look forward to working with you!
