Medical School Receives METI Simulation Innovators’ Recognition

Heidi Lane, Ed.D. (third from left), assistant professor of internal medicine and director of patient-centered education at NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine, guides students through an I-Stan human patient simulator demonstration.

NSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM) received a prestigious accolade in January from Medical Education Technologies, Inc. (METI), which honored the college’s simulation program with its top honor called Educator: Innovators!

According to METI, the college was recognized as a leader in education, using new and innovative ways to teach with simulated patients. To honor COM’s simulation achievements, a feature story focusing on the ways the college uses simulation to teach and the positive impact it has had on the health care community will be published in a future issue of METI’s HPSN News. In addition, a poster honoring the college’s simulation accomplishments will be displayed at the Human Patient Simulation Network (HPSN) Conference to be held from Feb. 22 to 24 in Tampa.
