Archive: Whose ER Response is Better? Medical Faculty, Residents Compete in ‘Sim Wars’

Residents and medical faculty of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health faced off in ‘Sim Wars’ at the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program.

‘Sim Wars’, which occured in early June during the UW Health Simulation Days, teamed medical faculty and residents against one another to compete in response to simulated emergency room situations.

You may ask yourself, what exactly is a clinical simulation program? And, how does it benefit my health and the health and wellness of others?

One of the most challenging aspects of training for health professionals is providing robust and realistic learning opportunities to prepare for actual patient care situations. Simulations are an invaluable teaching tool, giving faculty and residents a chance to learn about teamwork and making decisions under stress. UW Health’s state-of-the-science clinical simulation facility brings together current simulation activities and ensures that UW Health takes advantage of the latest simulation techniques and technologies in the rapidly growing field of health professionals education.
