The new frontier of modeling and simulation in healthcare

PhET: Simulations That Enhance Learning

Science just published a paper about using simulation to help students learning physics. This “encourage authentic and productive exploration of scientific phenomena, and provide credible animated models that usefully guide students’ thinking”.  In medicine, the Virtual Anesthesia Machine project is a great example.  More models and explorations are needed for this kind education activity in the field.

Medical Modeling and Simulation Database (MMSD)

The database is a great resource for simulation related literature by Eastern Virginia Medical School and the American College of Surgeons. Hope it will offer RSS feed soon for more convenience.
