RISE Education Innovation Video Series

The RISE Education Innovation Video series provides a venue for education innovators to disseminate their work; reach potential collaborators; and facilitate the adoption of their ideas into other spaces.

Surgical Trainee Competency & Early Career Patient Safety

Dr. Brian George, Assistant Professor of Surgery and Learning Health Sciences and Director, Center for Surgical Training and Research discusses an interdisciplinary approach to improving a complex issue in health sciences education – surgical resident variation in performance.  This approach focuses on linking education to patient outcomes using various engineering methods such as quality assurance, predictive analytics, and quality improvement.  This work is helping influence training readiness for independent practice and patient safety.

The Impact of High Fidelity, 3D-Printed Surgical Simulated Models on Education and Patient Care

Dr. David Zopf, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, describes how their UM-CRLT grant helped fund the creation of high fidelity, 3D-printed surgical simulated cleft palates as well as airway and ear reconstruction models. These models help shift medical education from the operating room into the simulated environment and have a local and global impact on patient care.

Cardiac Anatomical Virtual Reality (VR) Curriculum

Dr. Sonal Owens, Associate Professor of Pediatrics shares how she is using a virtual reality curriculum to educate medical learners on cardiac anatomy and congenital heart defects. This project is in collaboration with Daniel Axelrod, MD at The Stanford Virtual Heart – Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford.
