Abstract:

With patient safety and improved outcomes as its focus, the Institute for Surgical and Interventional Simulation ISIS, is dedicated to the training of medical professionals in technical and procedural skills, and research and development of emerging simulation technologies and educational strategies. ISIS is a collaborative institute of the University of Washington School of Medicine. It connects fifteen departments within the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Dentistry, the Biorobotics Laboratory, the Human Interface Technology Lab, and the Center for Videoendoscopic Surgery. ISIS has active MOUs with other simulation centers at University of British Columbia, Oregon Health and Sciences University, and Madigan Army Medical Center, and a presence in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. This model has applicability in civilian and military settings, as the collaboration with Madigan Army Medical Center Andersen Simulation Center demonstrates.
