Welcome to the Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education
The Gordon Center thrives on partnerships. Over the past four decades, our collaborations have expanded across Florida, the U.S., and the world. These partnerships have been instrumental in carrying out our mission to advance healthcare education and save lives through simulation technology. Today, I want to share some noteworthy collaborations that have shaped the Gordon Center's journey and made a lasting impact.
One significant partnership is with the American Heart Association (AHA). Together, we launched the Advanced Stroke Life Support® (ASLS) Blended Learning curriculum, aiming to reduce deaths and disability for stroke victims. Now the ASLS Blended Learning program has successfully launched internationally, building a global network of dedicated providers who are passionate about improving stroke care. During our recent visit to Delhi, India, we introduced both the ASLS Blended Learning course and our Improving Simulation Instructional Methods (iSIM) course, in an effort to continue revolutionizing healthcare education in that country and worldwide.
These represent just a fraction of the collaborations that shape our work. Partnerships elevate medical education, drive innovation, and enhance patient care. We are grateful for all our partners' contributions. Thank you for your ongoing support.
