Abstract

The training of physician learners in intensive care and coronary care medicine presents several unique challenges that are particularly suited to simulation-based medical education (SBME) solutions. Intensive care medical educators seek to provide evidence-based medical education and comprehensive clinical exposure for learners in the setting of maximal individual patient comfort and safety. This represents both a practical and ethical dilemma for educators - one that SBME can partially solve in a way that provides significant advantages over conventional "bedside" training, particularly in the intensive care setting among critically ill patients.
