David Gaba on simulation technology
More than 20 years ago, David Gaba, MD, created one of the first patient simulators: a dummy used to teach intubation. That early work marked him as the sort of father of simulation learning. Much has changed since then: Software has expanded the depth of the experience for students engaged in simulation learning. Now, a new Stanford center for immersive and simulation learning has opened at the Li Ki Shing Center for Knowledge and Learning. In this podcast, Gaba, who has been key in the design of the simulation center, discusses simulation technology and the new capabilities at Stanford.
