Participants from WISER, Stanford, Walter Reed and the Pittsburgh VA held an online academic discussion of two simulation based research articles. Topics discussed included communication patterns of anesthesiologists during simulation; and the effect of emotional stressors on medical student training. The group meets quarterly with the goal of exposing participants to advances in research and education outside his or her specialty, improving scholarly reading habits, and increasing communication between professionals at different sites across the United States. The next session will be held in April. More information, including full article citations, are available on the WISER website (Simulation Fellow Journal Club).
