High-Fidelity Simulation Enhances Learning During a Third Year Medical Student Pediatric Clerkship

Academic Article


  • This paper outlines the integration of four weekly one-hour simulations into a pediatric clerkship. Student knowledge increased 71±16% pretest to 90±9% posttest (p<0.001); self-assessed skills performance improved, and students were more likely to accept presence of family in an emergency situation (p < 0.001) after participating in the study.
