Do Fellows and Faculty Share the Same Perception of Simulation Fidelity? A Pilot Study
Conclusions Pediatric anesthesia fellows' ratings of simulation fidelity were at least as high as faculty ratings during an annual boot camp, suggesting that faculty in this setting developed simulations that the fellows found to be realistic. Faculty were relatively more critical of the fidelity of a skill session, compared with a teamwork scenario session. If this finding is generalizable, this may reassure faculty designing simulations for fellows. Continued inspection of the entwined nature of fidelity and simulation will help inform more effective learning for this growing educational modality. (Source: Simulation i...
