Hi Bob,

There is actually quite a bit of activity in the field of Simulation training in Radiology.  The MGH program can be found here:

There's a textbook (Oxford Press) on the topic, entitled "Simulation in Radiology."  The textbook was edited by Hugh J. Robertson, John T. Paige, and Leonard Bok from the Louisiana State University.   Print Publication Date: Jul 2012.   ISBN-13: 9780199764624
Also published online: DOI: 10.1093/med/9780199764624.001.000

There's an article in Radiographics,

I've also attached a book review for the Robertson book that was published in Radiology.

Subject: [IMPROVEDX] Simulator programs for medical training

Does anyone know if progress is being made in Medical Training in any of the Medical Schools in the world with Simulator programs/research similar to how the airline industry trains its pilots? I feel very strongly that repetition is the way to go with Medical Education and simulation programs could provide that in an acceptable way.

I seem to remember that some simulator research was going on at one of the Boston Teaching Facilities.

Is anything going on in the rest of the world?

Would welcome thoughts and information on this.
