CSC Brown Bag Series - September 2021

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Torrey Laack M.D., Medical Director, Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center will present "To stress or not to stress; the complex impact of stress on performance, memory, and experiential learning"

The clinical practice of medicine often involves stressors and interruptions that negatively impact performance.  However, increased stress can also enhance some memory formation which may enhance learning.  During this presentation, we will discuss what is known about the impact of stress on performance and memory with a focus on the implications this has for using stress during experiential learning.

Torrey Laack M.D. is Medical Director, Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center, and Chair Society for Simulation in Healthcare, Directors Section 

--To promote collaboration and best practices in simulation-based education and research, the UMCSC is hosting a monthly Brown Bag Series. The series is intended to allow all University faculty, staff, and learners the opportunity to learn and share best practices in simulation-based education and assessment. The series offers something for everyone, with a broad range of topics relating to simulation-based education in medicine.  Presentations will range from projects considered “in-development” from junior educators/researchers to presentations about successfully implemented curricula from the CSC Core faculty. Each session offers attendees the opportunity to gain insights and contribute to a dynamic discussion in a non-intimidating, friendly setting.

UMCSC Brown Bag Series is scheduled from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. monthly on select days in the Clinical Simulation Center

For any inquiries/comments, or you would like to present at the CSC BB Series, please contact Deb Rooney, Director of Education and Research, Clinical Simulation Center ([email protected](link is external)).
