Özet

Medicine Education is not only tiring but also pretty expensive type of education. In addition it does not tolerate mistake. Along with the vital importance of the medicine education, some difficulties in educational process of the medicine education render applying educational technologies on this field inevitable. One of these technologies, simulations provide doctors having their training with the opportunity of apply their knowledge onto computer managed systems before they apply real patience. In addition, simulations also provide students with the opportunity of facing rare situations and intervene with them. It is a fact that using simulations in medicine education escalades multilateral maneuver and group-work skills of the prospective doctors. It also improves communication skills self-confidence. In this study, some examples of simulation applications in emergency medicine education field were given and their results were discussed. (C) 2010 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
