NOSM and Laurentian University Students Learn Together at HSN Sim Lab
First-year students at both the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) and Laurentian University’s (LU) École des sciences infirmières had a shocking introduction to the Simulation Lab at Health Sciences North (HSN) when Dr. Rob Anderson, Medical Lead of HSN’s Sim Lab and Anesthesiology Program Director at NOSM, went into cardiac arrest yesterday during a presentation. Fortunately, it was all part of a staged introduction to a group exercise focused on various life saving skills. The final in a three-part education series, the day at the Sim Lab was designed to enhance interprofessional learning experiences for the students during their first year of study in their respective programs with a goal of improving collaboration when the students begin their health-care practices.
