HISTORY OF MEDICAL SIMULATION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CMS
In 1994, the Center for Medical Simulation put the first commercially-produced, full-featured mannequin simulator to work in training clinicians in teamwork and crisis management. Since then, CMS has grown in many ways, developing and operating courses for clinicians, medical educators, administrators and managers, and conducting an array of activities involving healthcare simulation.
Though the field has grown rapidly, CMS continues to differentiate itself with its multi-disciplinary, expert staff and exceptionally high-quality, innovative programs in full-environment facilities. In more than a decade of experience in medical simulation, CMS has trained nearly 6,000 participants.
