NYSIM News

This month we’d like to extend our warm welcomes to our new Administrative Coordinator, Emery Olson. Emery is joining the team after studying economics at the University of Massachusetts. At UMass, she was a part of the executive board for UMass For The Kids, a student organization that fundraises for a local children’s hospital. Through her collegiate work, she discovered a passion for helping further the medical field. At NYSIM, Emery will be working closely with the rest of the administrative team to ensure the center’s successful operation. NYSIM is thrilled to have Emery joining the team, and we hope you will join us in welcoming her to the NYSIM community!

 

We would also like to welcome Jolie Blair to the NYSIM team this month, as our newest Project Associate. Jolie recently graduated Emory University with a Bachelor of Arts in Human Health and Theater Studies. She is currently a Master of Health Administration candidate at Columbia Mailman School of Public Health. Jolie was introduced to the world of simulation at Emory University School of Medicine where she fell in love with OSCEs and their role in medical education. She currently assists the Program Manager in supporting the Standardized Patient, and External Programs at NYSIM. We are thrilled by Jolie’s enthusiasm for OSCEs and we are grateful for all she has brought to the team so far. Welcome, Jolie!

NYSIM is pleased to announce that we are starting our transition to a new Learning Management System, the B-Line Medical SimCapture system. As part of that transition we are upgrading the center’s Audio and Video infrastructure. This work begun in May, 2019, and will continue throughout the end of July, 2019. During this time, the Audio/Visual company will be on site to remove old equipment and install new hardware for the new system. We are working tirelessly to ensure this transition runs as smoothly as possible, and we appreciate the ongoing patience and support of our faculty and staff!

This month, NYSIM would like to celebrate Dr. Sandy Zabar for her recent honor as one of six recipients of The New York University Distinguished Teaching Award. Established in 1987, this nomination-based award recognizes the exceptional work of NYU’s most innovative and outstanding faculty. Throughout her career here at NYU, Sandy has served in various leadership roles, as co-director of the Primary Care Residency Program; director of the Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Innovation; director of the NYSIM’s Standardized Patient Program; and founder of the Program for Medical Education Innovations and Research (PrMEIR). Here at NYSIM, Sandy’s presence and expertise in developing Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) with our Standardized Patient Actors/Medical Educators has truly been invaluable. Sandy’s remarkable attention to organization, training, assess-ment, and evidence-based research consistently makes NYSIM and NYU at large a more excellent educational environment for our learners. We are both proud of and grateful for Sandy, and we hope you will join us in celebrating Dr. Sandy Zabar on this distinctive honor.

Thank you and Congratulations, Sandy!

In late January 2019, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) held its annual conference for the advancement of simulation in healthcare. At IMSH, simulation professionals come together to network and explore best practices, advances in science and technology in healthcare simulation, and more. This year, NYU and NYSIM’s Night-onCall (NOC) team was recognized for one such innovation in simulation. NOC researchers recently published the first in a series of manuscripts and projects reporting on the significance of a simulated Night-onCall for medical students transitioning to residency. What began as a research study at NYU has now become a collaboration with several medical schools who are implementing it, or variations of NOC. NOC is now officially part of the NYU undergraduate medical curriculum for near-graduating medical students.

 

Congratulations to all, and great work at #IMSH2019!

To kick off the New Year, we wanted to spotlight one of our Simulation Operations Associate's (SOA) innovative work, often utilized in order to meet the learning needs and objectives of new clients and programs at NYSIM. On January 30th, NYSIM hosted a medical device company's training for their marketing executives. They requested ICU and NICU setups, with the goal that their marketing personnel would encounter the emotional intensity of these patient experiences via simulated scenarios utilizing their medical devices. NYSIM's Senior Simulation Operations Associate, Cynthia Reyes took the lead in creating said requested environments. The group was so impressed with the setup and the overall day, that they shared pictures with their colleagues, and talks are currently underway for hosting another program for the company's research and development team. Check out some pictures of her creative setups to the right. Great work, Cynthia!

NYSIM hosted a 4 hour immersive simulation on Patient Safety and Quality to orient the In- coming Interns to the NYULH culture of being a High Reliability Organization. The program included Group OSCE’s, a Patient Safety Room and Case Based Discussions. In June 2017 we hosted 156 incoming interns from 7 residency programs and this year we will host 205 in- coming interns from 17 residency programs.

The oral abstract presented at SGIM, Simulated First Night-onCall (FNOC): Establishing Com- munity and a Culture of Patient Safety for Incoming Interns, presented at the SGIM 2018 annual meeting, has been selected as the Best Oral Presentation in Quality Improvement and Patient Safety.
