The Clinical Education team designs experiential learning activities that promote patient safety, improve clinical outcomes and foster positive patient experiences. Our educators collaborate closely with MedStar SiTEL’s simulation team as well as clinical subject matter experts to design, develop, implement and evaluate meaningful learning programs for health care professionals. Using knowledge of the clinical domain, educators emphasize realism in simulation, making sure learning experiences reflect the working environment of our associates. In addition, MedStar SiTEL’s educators help leaders build their own expertise through train-the-trainer programs and faculty development events.
Educators are certified through the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) to support the development of scenario-based simulation activities, which teach lessons on procedural-based skills as well as communication, teamwork and collaboration.
Clinical Education also supports the accreditation of MedStar SiTEL’s programs and simulation center, ensuring MedStar is recognized as a national leader in professional education.
