We are thrilled that you are interested in obtaining your simulation-based
component of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesia ® (MOCA) at the
Shapiro Simulation and Skills Center (SASC) at Beth Israel Deaconess
Medical Center of Harvard Medical School. Our center has received
endorsement from the American Society of Anesthesiology (ASA) in 2010. This
endorsement allows us to offer MOCA simulation courses, participate in the
ASA Simulation Education Network and contribute to advances in simulation.
This simulation course fulfills one requirement of the American Board of
Anesthesiology's (ABA) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology
Program (MOCA®) Part IV. Please consult THEABA.org for a list
of all MOCA® requirements.
Anesthesiologist participants will actively manage realistic simulation
scenarios that demonstrate clinical and technical skills as well as
teamwork and communication. The participant to instructor ratio will not
exceed 3 to 1, in order to provide a quality learning
environment. Those participants without prior simulation experience will
receive a thorough introduction to the mannequin, facility and equipment
before beginning any scenarios. After a customized prebriefing, the
participant will receive several scenarios that may focus on one of the
following conditions: hemorrhage, hemoptysis, myocardial infarction,
amniotic embolus, or seizure. Each participant is guaranteed to play the
primary role in at least one scenario. Each session will be immediately
followed by a video debriefing that will include mention of the relevant
clinical and technical actions as well as the examples of team dynamics and
communication skills. All recordings are for the benefit of the participant
and will not be released from the Center.
Breakfast and lunch are provided.
Please contact Ron Mayes at 617-667-5039 or
to express interest in the course and to receive first-come-first-served
priority in the upcoming courses. You will be contacted by a member of the
Center who will ask for your information as well as for a deposit to hold
Participants can cancel a reservation without penalty up to 30 days before
their scheduled session. After this date, a $50 charge will be assessed for
administration and processing.
