• simulators
  • Due to the fact that computer simulation technology is still relatively new with regard to flight and military simulators, there is still much research to be done about the best way to approach medical training through simulation, which continues to remain un-standardized although much more universally accepted and embraced by the medical community. (wikipedia.org)
  • By removing the risk of working on a real patient, simulators prepare medical students, or anyone else who uses the device, for real-world situations. (wikipedia.org)

(wikipedia.org)
  • learner
  • An instructional simulation, also called an educational simulation, is a simulation of some type of reality (system or environment) but which also includes instructional elements that help a learner explore, navigate or obtain more information about that system or environment that cannot generally be acquired from mere experimentation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rather, a simulation only becomes instructional when instructional elements are included that help expose the learner to key parts or concepts of the system or environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Virtual patients allow the learner to take the role of a health care professional and develop clinical skills such as making diagnoses and therapeutic decisions. (wikipedia.org)
