SIM102 – Sim Curriculum Development Policy
SIM101 – Sim Scheduling Policy
Simulation-based experiences for remediation, makeup, and independent practice may be scheduled in The Center for Healthcare Improvement and Patient Simulation (CHIPS).
- Remediation Event- any subsequent delivery of a simulation event due to an academic deficiency
- Independent Practice – when students, residents or other learners wish to participate in a self-led simulation-based practice of skills without presence of a faculty or instructor.
- Makeup Event – when students, residents, or other learners have an excused absence (as determined by Lead Simulation Faculty/Facilitator) for a required event OR when a scheduled event goes over its allotted time and not all learners are able to complete the event.
- Lead Simulation Faculty/Facilitator – A Simulation Faculty/Facilitator that is responsible for the overall development and delivery of the simulation activity.
- All events, including remediation, makeup and independent practice, should be requested via the online event request form at uthsc.edu/chips.
- Walk-in independent study or remediation activities are accommodated based on available space, time, staff and/or other resources.
Remediation and makeup requests:
- Remediation and makeup requests are not confirmed until a need for remediation or makeup has been identified. Early requests (requests made before the need is identified) will be placed on the CHIPS calendar as a “tentative” event. Status changes from “tentative” to “confirmed” when the Lead Simulation Faculty/Facilitator communicates details about the identified need to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Events on calendar as “tentative” do not preclude other events being scheduled that may conflict with available rooms or resources.
- Lead Simulation Faculty/Facilitator will receive email confirmation when a remediation or makeup event has been confirmed.
- Independent practice occurs during normal CHIPS business hours unless approved by the Executive Director.
- Faculty are encouraged to schedule time blocks through event request (#1 above) for time windows where students may drop in for independent practice.
