Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning

Leading research and innovation

The Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning—an interprofessional centre of excellence—uses medical simulation to enhance the skills of health care professionals. The SIM Centre continuously strives to improve patient safety and quality of care through education, research, evaluation and innovation.

Education mission

While simulation-based medical education has been prevalent in clinical arenas for almost 40 years, there has been a lag in the efforts to translate simulation training into discernible improvements in clinical care.

The focus has been on delivery of simulation training modalities, withmeasurement at the level of learner performance, though not addressing the impact on patient care.

The educational mission of the Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning will be firmly embedded within processes to improve clinical care.
