Crozer-Keystone Health System Trauma Surgeon Receives the Certified Healthcare Simulation Education Certification
Crozer-Keystone Health System trauma surgeon Marcin A. Jankowski, DO, FACOS recently received the Certified Healthcare Simulation Education Certification (CHSE) from the Society of Simulation in Healthcare (SSH).
The certification recognizes Jankowski’s specialized knowledge, skills, abilities and accomplishments related to healthcare simulation. Jankowski is privileged to be one of only 253 certified healthcare simulation educators in the world.
SSH is comprised of educators and researchers who use a variety of simulation techniques for education, testing, and research in healthcare. The goal of the society is to improve healthcare performance and reduce errors in patient care using all types of simulation including task trainers, human patient simulators, virtual reality, and standardized patients. Meeting strict eligibility standards and passing a final written examination is required to receive the certification.
Jankowski leads the new Institute for Clinical Education, Simulation, Innovation and Safety (ICESIS) at Crozer-Chester Medical Center. Launched mid-2012, the Institute is a state-of-the-art hospital simulation laboratory that mimics a small-scale hospital and provides hands-on clinical education and training to healthcare professionals and students.
Located in the 1 East wing of Crozer, ICESIS consists of separate rooms for lectures and individual skills training, as well as breakout rooms that pose as hospital settings, including medical/surgical, pediatrics and emergency departments, operating rooms and other clinical settings.
