First-year residents outperform third-year residents after simulation-based education in critical care medicine
Simulation in Healthcare (login required)
Previous research shows that gaps exist in internal medicine residents' critical care knowledge and skills. The purpose of this study was to compare the bedside critical care competency of first-year residents who received a simulation-based educational intervention plus clinical training with third-year residents who received clinical training alone.

High-fidelity mannequin gives nursing students experience with childbirth
The Indianapolis Star
Ashley Thomas, 25, has given birth herself. But Thomas, who is studying to become a licensed practical nurse at Medtech, had no idea what birth entailed for the healthcare provider. Mama Noelle, a mannequin who simulates the birthing experience, changed that. Noelle, one of a handful of high-fidelity mannequins at the school, helps introduce students like Thomas to the labor and delivery room.

Are medical students being taught invasive skills using simulation?
Simulation in Healthcare (login required)
Basic invasive procedural skills are traditionally taught during clerkships. Using simulation to teach invasive skills provides students the opportunity to practice in a structured environment without risking patient safety. Researchers surveyed incoming interns at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to assess the prevalence of simulation training for invasive and semi-invasive procedural skills during medical school.

Study: Virtual patient design — exploring what works and why
Medical Education (login required)
Virtual patients (VPs) are online representations of clinical cases used in medical education. Widely adopted, they are well placed to teach clinical reasoning skills. International technology standards mean VPs can be created, shared and repurposed between institutions. A systematic review has highlighted the lack of evidence to support which of the numerous VP designs may be effective and why.

A conversation about digital literacy in medical education
Scope
A strong advocate for including digital literacy in medical education, self-described "geek medical futurist" Dr. Bertalan Meskó, Ph.D., believes that online communication tools, such as social media, can improve the way medicine is practiced and health care is delivered. Meskio's interest in technology and health care led him to create a university course focusing on bringing the web into medical practice and to launch Webicina, which offers curated social media resources in 140 topics and 20 languages for patients and medical professionals for free.
