Description: The simulation Olympiad at CAEP, now in its eighth year, is designed to showcase the skill of multiple interdisciplinary health care teams from across the country as well as to highlight the educational benefits of simulation. Eight teams will participate in a round-robin competition, with four teams advancing to the semi-finals, and two teams participating in the finals. Scenarios span the breadth of emergency medicine presentations and can include patients from neonates to the elderly. Teams will be evaluated by expert debriefers and assessed on their medical and procedural management, as well as their team work and crisis resource management skills.
