105 – Training Simulators in Veterinary Medicine
Thursday, June 8
7:45am - 12:30pm (Aprox. to be confirmed with the final program)
The University Of Calgary Faculty Of Veterinary Medicine has become internationally recognized for its pioneering work in the development and use of simulators for the training of students in the DVM program. This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about the various technologies being used in the development and creation of simulators ranging from ‘calvable’ and ‘milkable’ cows, to tissue simulators that mimic the properties of the body wall. Attendees will tour and experience the cutting-edge tissue plastination lab, and observe 3-D printing techniques used by teaching technicians in the state-of-the-art Clinical Skills Building. Demonstrations and interactions with simulators will be part of this unique hands-on learning opportunity. You will be surprised at how simple, yet sophisticated and complex simulators can be. This workshop will provide information about evolving technologies associated with simulator development and participants will enjoy working with simulators that are less likely to be encountered in the conventional laboratory animal environment!
