DESCRIPTION

UC San Diego Health Sciences encompasses UC San Diego Health, the region's only academic health system, UC San Diego School of Medicine, one of the nation's top research-intensive medical schools, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Southern California's first public school of pharmacy, and Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science. UC San Diego Health Sciences' mission is to deliver outstanding patient care through commitment to the community, groundbreaking research and inspired teaching.

The division of Medical Education within the UC San Diego School of Medicine consists of the following units: Undergraduate Medical Education, Admissions & Student Affairs, Diversity and Community Partnerships, Graduate Medical Education, Continuing Medical Education & Faculty Development, Simulation Education, Physician Assistant Education, Anatomical Services, Business Affairs and Educational Technology. The division supports the education, training and co-curricular activities of approximately 560 medical students, 90 physician assistant students, 1000 residents and fellows as well as the faculty, physician and healthcare providers at UCSD’s School of Medicine, its' Medical Centers, and affiliates.

The Professional Development Center (PDC) is home to the School of Medicine’s Standardized Patient Program (SPP). The SPP is an educational resource providing opportunities for clinical skills learning and assessment across the spectrum of undergraduate, graduate and continuing professional development. The goal of the SPP is to provide realistic practice opportunities in a simulated environment where it is safe to make mistakes and learn from them before working independently with real patients. The Program works with individuals referred to as Standardized or Simulated Patients (SPs), who are specially trained to accurately and authentically portray actual patients.

The Simulation Training Center (STC) serves the undergraduate, graduate, and continuing professional development programs through the use of simulation technologies such as high fidelity, total body simulators, partial task trainers and diagnostic monitoring equipment. In addition, training takes place in a fully equipped simulated hospital setting; i.e., an in-patient room, operating suite, ICU, and emergency room, as well as a fully equipped outpatient clinical setting in the adjacent Professional Development Center (PDC). The STC has continued to expand as the use of simulation technologies has dramatically grown and taken on an even more important role in both the undergraduate curriculum and the residency programs.

Applies professional concepts to conduct analytical studies or projects of moderate scope and complexity to address a variety of policy, research and procedural issues. Fully analyzes issues and problems, gathers data and information, finds and evaluates alternatives and makes sound recommendations.

Serve as the Simulation Education Coordinator for the Professional Development Center (PDC) and for select projects with the Simulation Training Center at the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Support all PDC and occasional STC events and activities for Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME), Graduate Medical Education (GME), Continuing Professional Development (CPD), the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SSPPS), Atkinson Physician Assistant Education Program, and outside agencies. Act as the administrative liaison between the PDC and all schools and departments. Manage logistics and administrative tasks for all PDC events and activities. Manage PDC administrative budgets and billing. Manage PDC facilities, including exam rooms and meeting/training rooms. Monitor and inventory rooms and offices equipment as needed. Assist with the analysis of objectives of both Centers' events and activities to determine appropriate administrative procedures. Participate in design and implementation such procedures.

Assist the Director of Simulation Education with special projects.
