Medical simulation for disaster casualty management training.

A required, role-intensive leadership simulation in emergency and disaster medicine management for fourth-year medical students is described, and the value of an extended role-playing experience discussed. The week-long (120 hours) simulation exercise is designed to provide an opportunity for Federal medical students to experience a realistic combat or disaster environment similar to environments in which they may be required to operate medical support systems. Students function in a variety of roles and have the opportunity to place into practice all emergency medical knowledge and skills acquired throughout medical school. As a prerequisite to the exercise, students successfully complete a 3-week didactic course in Operational and Emergency Medicine which includes Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Provider Courses. By means of disaster simulation they refine medical skills, leadership style, substantially improve clinical judgment, and deal with the complexities of problems associated with their future roles as medical officers.[1]
