The loss of 400,00 lives annually due to preventable, adverse outcomes is believed to be the third leading cause of death in the United States, after heart disease and cancer1, 2 .

The leadership of the University of South Florida, Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) has heard this concern and developed a national model for improving medical education and patient safety, as well as aggressive and needed healthcare solutions through the use of cutting edge technology, innovation, and simulation.

CAMLS’ goal is to use technology, simulated environments, and team training to transition medical education from an apprenticeship model to an evidence-based competency model that improves patient outcomes and reduces medical errors.

The processes used at CAMLS are reflective of the instructional design process and team training approach used successfully in aviation and the military.
