Develop a Project

For projects involving new cases or scenarios, we must have at least 3 months notice prior to the start date. The center operates at a full or near to full capacity almost year round, so it is imperative to try and plan ahead when possible.

For projects using pre-existing cases and/or scenarios, there is some flexibility in the timeline, but generally speaking we like to schedule everything at least three months in advance.

For Technology-Based Simulation please see our Standard Operating Procedures (SOP)

Timeline for project implementation:

3 months before exam or workshop
  • Based on center availability, the project is scheduled
  • SAIL staff is given all information in order to implement project including casting requirements (gender, age, specific traits, etc.) as well as equipment needed (high-fidelity mannequins, task trainers, etc). Final versions of cases or scenarios are not required at this time but we do need objectives and an outline of materials.
2 months before project
  • Final version of cases or scenarios are completed.
  • Casting completed.
1 month before project
  • Initial SP/Clinical Skills Instructor training is completed.
  • All changes are final including: paperwork, minor adjustments to cases, addition or subtraction of project elements.
If the project is an exam and a pilot of new scenarios is required, an additional two months may be required. This allows time for necessary changes to be implemented.
