For over a decade, Florida State University College of Medicine has used EMS' enterprise simulation management solution to evaluate student and resident competency. Although this centralized system works well for main campus faculty and those students in the early years of training, there were disadvantages for those in the remote settings. "Getting everyone to the main campus was quite a challenge," says Deb Danforth, MS, ARNP, FAANP, Associate Professor and Director of the Charlotte E. Maguire, MD and TMH Clinical Learning Center of Florida State University.
Now EMS' MobilSIM™ solution helps assess medical students at geographically distributed clerkship sites. "In our first year with the mobile program we saved over $80,000. This increased enthusiasm for mobile academic simulation," says Danforth.
