Interdisciplinary Training in Medical Simulation: A Comparison of Team Training Courses in Simulation Programs in Hospital Healthcare Systems, Medical Schools and Nursing Schools

This article discusses medical simulation training and identifies how this learning style can impact the design of simulation centers. The article reviews existing research regarding team-based simulations in medical facilities, course offerings and reports for educational and hospital-based simulation centers. Also, several case studies are reviewed that illustrate how the built environment could be designed to support this type of training. Conclusions indicate that these types of training spaces are evolving at a rapid pace, and that flexibility of use is a key aspect for architectural design.
