NYSIM Highlights: Upgraded Equipment

We are also glad to announce that NYSIM has upgraded several of our GlideScopes to their newest model, GlideScope® CoreTM. This new flexible airway visualization system is the first of its kind to offer live, simultaneous picture-in- picture imaging. It also incorporates disposable blades. Another upgrade that we’re excited to announce is the newest SimBaby from Laerdal Medical. This mannequin has a variety of new features, including capillary refill, pupillary light reflex, and it is entirely wireless. Be sure to check in with SOAs during intakes to discuss utilizing the new equipment!

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!
