Simulation-based training is becoming mandatory for all practicing anesthesiologists. It is the nature of our practice that we become state-of-the-art practitioners in all clinical disciplines. The goal of simulation training at the UK College of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, Critical Care, and Pain Medicine is to provide innovative clinical case scenarios that will test the practice of anesthesia.
Within UK’s training program, residents and learners are exposed to a wide variety of complicated anesthesia scenarios with the use of high-fidelity simulators. We also incorporate the use of individualized task simulators such as the HeartWorks TEE simulator and ultrasound guided central line and regional blockade simulators.
Our simulation faculty are involved in research projects related to simulation as well as the development of new case scenarios to provide the best simulation training experience available.
