SIMULATION EDUCATION

A position for Simulation Educator is immediately available in the
Maryland Advanced Simulation, Training, Research and Innovation (MASTRI)
Center and in the Department of Surgery at the University of Maryland,
Baltimore, Maryland. The selected candidate will design and conduct
various training protocols for medical students, nurses, residents in
various clinical departments, attending physicians and other health care
providers

Background: The MASTRI Center at the University of Maryland is an
innovative, research-driven, high-technology, state-of-the-art training
center. Its goals are to lead in evaluation development and testing in
regard to emerging simulation technologies and techniques and in the
ongoing transformation of surgery and other medical procedures.
Additionally, the Center is envisioned as a premier educational
environment devoted to the training of healthcare practitioners across a
diverse spectrum, with particular focus on how users learn and adapt to
new technologies.

Training underway in the Maryland Advanced Simulation, Training,
Research and Innovation (MASTRI) center includes orientation and skills
training for medical students, resident training in surgery, endoscopy
and other clinical disciplines, nursing education and first-responder
training. The MASTRI center also maintains surgical simulators for
training and research into cognitive factors that influence learning and
task performance.

The Simulation Educator would serve as an educator and facilitator of
simulation-based training and evaluation activities. He/she would
create, test and run scenarios with faculty instructors, assuring that
the facility and equipment were set up and operational for medical
teaching sessions. He/she would support the MASTRI Center curriculum
specialist in assisting faculty with integrating simulation training
into established training programs. He/she would serve as the primary
controller of simulated patient responses during training of medical
scenarios.

Under the direction of the MASTRI Center Director, the Simulation
Educator will be responsible for the following:

* Develop and execute training scenarios relevant to emergency codes,
CPR, BLS, ACLS, sentinel events, resident orientation, surgical and
medical skills, triage and team training and other EMS and in-hospital
training needs.
* Collaborate with physicians, faculty educators and other stakeholders
on the development and delivery of simulation activities to integrate
equipment into the learning strategies and assessment processes of the
MASTRI Center.
* Understand the use and operation of different simulator technologies
ranging from anatomic models and task trainers to screen-based
simulation and full body patient simulators and virtual reality surgical
simulators.
* Teach and instruct faculty, staff and students on the use of
simulation. Maintain proficiency in existing and emerging technologies,
and participate in technology training and attend conferences to stay
current with simulation technology.
* Contribute to the development of Center policies, procedures and
practices.
* Collaborate with faculty, educators and physicians on simulation-based
training research, including involvement in the design and analysis of
results.

Qualifications:

Bachelor’s degree or equivalent is required with registration and
licensure in a related healthcare field. Master’s degree is preferred.
Experience: At least two years of experience in clinical education is
required.
• Skills and Attributes: Previous research and/or teaching experience
highly desirable.

Except for qualifications established by law, additional related
experience and formal education in which one has gained the knowledge,
skills, and abilities required for full performance of the work of the
job class may be substituted for the education or experience requirement
on a year-for-year basis with 30 college credits being equivalent to one
year of experience.
