Clinical Simulation in Medical Education: The Wisconsin Experience
The past 5-years have seen a dramatic increase in the enrollment in the nation’s medical schools. This, unfortunately, has not been coupled with a concomitant increase in faculty size. It has, however, coincided with a decrease in ward service populations, the traditional source of “teaching” patients. These events have put a considerable strain on existing medical school clinical teaching facilities. In response to this medical educators have begun to investigate the use of alternate training techniques. One area that has come under close scrutiny has been the use of computers in medical education.
