Cleveland, OH, USA: Simbionix USA Corporation, the world’s leading provider of medical education and simulation technology, released its new MentorLearn system at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) last week.
Simbionix’s exciting new MentorLearn platform now provides the optimal solution for managing all training and education needs for the Simbionix line of simulators. The easy to use system facilitates performing the administrative tasks of running a training course or workshop. The system includes a library of ready-to-use simulator based curricula and a platform to design new training curricula. Curricula may include online didactics, proficiency based hands-on training and performance review and assessment. Dr. Pasquale Berlingieri and Professor Owen Epstein from the Royal Free Medical Simulation Center in the UK said that “the Simbionix simulators are an outstanding example of thoughtful design and recognition that the virtual reality experience needs to be integrated with ease of use and automated recording of trainees’ metrics which trainers can use to assess progress”.
Training centers’ directors and delegates at the IMSH who had the chance to experience MentorLearn were extremely enthusiastic to find a comprehensive management system dedicated to simulators use. They commented on the ways they could see their centers benefiting by implementing such an advanced centralized system to manage their daily activities as well as support the creation and management of special courses and workshops.
“Simbionix is constantly designing and implementing innovative products to enhance the use of our medical simulators to support our customers and to add value to the learning process”, commented Mr. Ran Bronstein, Simbionix President. “The MentorLearn system provides a comprehensive infrastructure to assist administrators, directors and learners make the most out of the learning experience. We made sure to include online capabilities, since we believe that remote management is essential to ensuring the efficient management of simulator and training programs, allowing educators to follow and control the training process and learner attendance at all times.”
