Abstract

Simulation allows for learner-centered health professions training by providing a safe environment to practice and make mistakes without jeopardizing patient care. It was with this goal in mind that the McGill Medical Simulation Center was officially opened on September 14, 2006, as a partnership between McGill University, the Faculty of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals. Its mandate is to provide state-of-the-art facilities to support simulation-based medical and allied health education initiatives. Since its inception, the center, recently renamed the Steinberg Center for Simulation and Interactive Learning (SCSIL), has undergone a major expansion and logged more than 130,000 learner visits. Educational activities are offered at all levels of medical and allied health care training, and include standardized patient encounters, partial task trainers, multidisciplinary courses, and high-fidelity trainers, among many others. In addition to its educational mandate, the center also supports an active research program, programs to enhance collaboration with disciplines outside of health care to spur innovation, and community outreach initiatives.
