Background and Objective: Holding simulation courses in medical education is becoming more and more
popular. Simulation appliance in medical training has led to more effective learning and safer care for patients.
Simulation can ameliorate our defects in clinical bed-side training in a busy environment like an Emergency
Objective To evaluate the effectiveness of simulation program on emergency medicine (EM) residents’
performance in critical actions
Methods and Materials: We implemented a mandatory simulation program in EM residency curriculum in
2014. Ten of the EM faculties, gathered voluntarily and they peer reviewed the critical elementary topics and
wrote scenarios during 48 regular sessions. In this study, we designed the peer reviewed checklists containing
critical actions and procedures specified for each scenario. All faculty member attending simulation courses,
rated residents and fulfilled checklists in a Likert scale from 1 to 5 (very bad to very good). We evaluated
residents’ performance through these checklists.
Results: EM faculties’ evaluation showed that in general, residents had quite a good performance in taking
critical actions and procedures (45.4%).
Conclusion: Simulation can effectively improve medical performance in ED
