We are honored to welcome Dr. McGaghie to share his perspective on the role of medical education in translational science.  Dr. McGaghie’s presentation will provide those engaged in designing educational programs and educational research with a framework for designing studies that examine the reasons for moving medical training from the simulation lab to patient care settings, and give examples of research studies on simulation-based medical education (SBME) as translational science.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Present and describe features of rigorous simulation-based medical education (SBME)
  • Explain the transfer of training pathway from the simulation education laboratory to patient care settings
  • Interpret data from selected research studies on SBME as translational science
  • Present the SBME “big picture” via meta-analysis
