Event Overview
Welcome message:

he Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Department of Anesthesiology, in partnership with the Center for Experiential Learning and Assessment (CELA) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, offers realistic, immersive patient simulation education for ABA Diplomates seeking to fulfill their Practice Performance Assessment and Improvement (PPAI) requirement for the American Board of Anesthesiologists® (ABA) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) Program. This course fulfills the simulation education requirement of Part 4 of MOCA®. 

The VUMC simulation program has been endorsed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ (ASA) Committee on Simulation Education to provide high quality training to ASA members. To achieve the endorsement, CELA met strict criteria, including having well-documented educational offerings and curriculum, established instructor competency, strong leadership, and the equipment, facilities, personnel to provide sophisticated training. Learn more about CELA by visiting their website:

Participants will have an orientation to the simulation equipment before providing care to simulated patients. Each participant will take the lead as the primary decision maker on at least one simulated event. Simulations typically include the use of a high-fidelity patient simulator (such as Laerdal SimMan 3G™) as well as simulated clinicians and/or patients (actors with scripted roles) and routine clinical equipment.
