Abstract

The training of physician in the art and science of clinical medicine presents several challenges that are well suited to simulation based medical education (SBME). Modern patient centered medical education seeks to provide comprehensive "hands-on" clinical exposure for physicians in training, while simultaneously providing maximum individual patient comfort and safety. The ethical conundrum is obvious: direct patient contact is needed in order to educate the best clinical physicians and surgeons, but patients have an expectation to be treated and have surgery performed only by highly trained healthcare personnel. This is the kernel of the "medical educators dilemma". Simulation based medical education can partially solve "the medical educators dilemma" by providing realistic medical education in a safe, error tolerant environment with convenience and advantages over conventional "bedside" training but is it real medicine or make believe!
