The Hannaford Center for Safety, Innovation and Simulation has established itself as a pillar of medical training and education at Maine Medical Center, for lifelong learners at all levels, including faculty, students, graduate medical trainees, and interprofessional care providers. In the past several years, the reach of the simulation center has begun to extend to other MaineHealth hospitals, community partners and the ambulatory setting.
The Sim Center is a robust resource for faculty development, offering training in curricular design, debriefing facilitation, and outcome evaluation. The Sim Center serves as an ideal laboratory to study the efficacy of educational endeavors and can facilitate scholarly work by our faculty.
