Simulation is becoming an increasingly important tool in medical education. Specifically, multidisciplinary team-based simulation exercises are being used to promote teamwork and communication among various members of care teams. Similar to its use in the aviation industry, this type of team building simulation has shown promising results in improving teamwork and improving patient safety outcomes. Several key players in the health-care setting, including hospitals and malpractice insurance providers, have recognized these benefits and are promoting the use of multidisciplinary simulation for staff training. Despite several barriers to implementation, the use of multidisciplinary simulation will be an important part of a new emerging model of medical education. The following core competencies are addressed in this article: Patient care, Interpersonal and communication skills, Systems-based practice.
