Eric B. Bauman, PhD, RN, FSSH Welcome to Class By Eric B. Bauman I recently spent a week at the United States Department of Homeland Security Center for Domestic Preparedness training facility in Alabama attending a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) course. The course was the Emergency Medical Operations (EMO) for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive Incidents (CBRNE). The 32-hour course was a combination of didactic classroom content and integration of immersive small-group learning scenarios and large-scale

M. Cooper, E.B. Bauman & G. Miller at SSH/IMSH President’s Gala The 2019 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare took place in San Antonio, Texas on January 26-30. This year’s meeting brought together a record 4000 attendees interested in new and emerging technologies for health professions education.   Clinical Playground players Dr. Eric B. Bauman and Dr. Greg E. Gilbert facilitated and presented courses along with esteemed colleagues and students they have mentored. The presentations reflect their

In 2018 Clinical  Playground players enjoyed a productive year traveling for presentations, seminars and workshops shore-to-shore and internationally from the Caribbean to Europe, and even China. Between trips, Clinical Playground founder and managing member Dr. Eric B. Bauman experienced the pleasure and honor of working with talented colleagues on projects, some of which received industry and academic recognition. Jon Brouchoud & Eric B. Bauman, PhD, FSSH While in Los Angeles, CA for the 2018 International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare Dr. Bauman was presented

The steady-eyed attending surgeon managed to remain calm while he guided me through the tricky orthopedic procedure, despite the urgency of the situation. The purplish black bruising on the leg and my view of the X-ray gave me the information I needed to start. The attending surgeon walked around the room evaluating my every move and giving me directions. Another player who looked a lot like Morpheus from the Matrix assisted me in putting the boy’s leg back together. Performing

Dr. Eric B. Bauman was in Los Angeles last week for the 2018 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH). He had the honor of helping induct the second class of fellows into the Society for Simulation in Healthcare Academy, and co-facilitate a workshop on game-development for clinical educators and several panels related to emerging technology and Virtual Reality, as well as participate in the 8th annual Serious Games and Virtual Reality

Eric B. Bauman, Ph.D., RN, FSSH January 13 – 17, 2018 the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) will hold its International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), in Los Angeles. As augmented and virtual reality evolve, the new technology creates a mandate for clinical educators leveraging game-based learning and simulation to keep pace. Clinical Playground’s Dr. Eric B. Bauman will present several topics specific to best educational practices for clinical education subject to emerging and innovative technology.       SSH Forum
