October 2022 Newsletter - Simulation and Skills Center

Updated: Mar 9, 2023

“On a typical day, surgeons, anesthesiologists, scrub technicians, nurses, and more all learn through progressive teaching methods that replicate real life patient care situations including routine procedures, acute management crises and robotic surgeries. The more that we practice and learn in simulation, the better the care is that we can deliver to our patients.“

-Richard M. Schwartzstein, MD

Executive Director


Dear friends,


Since its inception in 2006, the Carl J. Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center has been at the forefront of medical education. It serves as an innovative resource at BIDMC and proves that a wide range of learners can benefit from simulation training.


On a typical day, surgeons, anesthesiologists, scrub technicians, nurses, and more all learn through progressive teaching methods that replicate real life patient care situations including routine procedures, acute management crises and robotic surgeries. The more that we practice and learn in simulation, the better the care is that we can deliver to our patients.


In 2020, the most recent full academic year before Covid interrupted in-person learning, the simulation center conducted more than 1,500 instructional hours for 2,779 learners consisting of medical students, residents, nurses, faculty, and other health care professionals.


Today, the simulation center continues to evolve as it makes a major impact on interprofessional teaching at BIDMC. In 2022, Dan Ricotta, MD, was appointed senior director of the Simulation and Skills Center. Dan‘s initiatives, as you will read about in the coming pages, will be to build new infrastructure using the latest technologies to lead SASC to new heights in the coming years.


Through faculty development, cutting edge technology and innovative training techniques, the Simulation Center will continue to be a valuable hospital-wide resource which will impact our learners and their patients for years to come.
