CSC Lunch & Learn: Sonal Owens, MD

12:00 PM

To promote collaboration and best practices in simulation-based education and research, the UMCSC is hosting a monthly Lunch and Learn 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 Lunch and Learn 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 L&L Series, please contact Deb Rooney, Director of Education and Research, Clinical Simulation Center ([email protected](link is external)(link is external)).

"Virtual Reality Curriculum to Teach Trainees About Congenital Heart Disease"

Dr. Owens' team helped to develop the Stanford Virtual Heart (SVH), a virtual reality curriculum to teach normal cardiac anatomy as well as 6 basic congenital heart defects (CHDs). Multi-center prospective studies have shown that the SVH improves pediatric residents' as well as medical students' knowledge on CHDs. Future initiatives include developing a virtual reality curriculum for more complex lesions (such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome).
