OMS Faculty Section Educational Symposium: Combining Technology and Clinical Knowledge to Enhance Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Education


The benefits of integrating simulation training in oral and maxillofacial surgery residency programs is plainly evident with the potential to increase surgical competency and decrease medical errors without risk to patients. The development of this technology may be in a very early stage, there are several applications of this type of training that are currently being utilized. It is clear that this form of training will continue to expand and affect medical and dental residency training in a profound manner.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the benefits of integrating clinical simulations into training in oral and maxillofacial surgery;
  2. Understand of the various technologies and modalities currently available and under development for clinical simulators;
  3. Be familiar with simulations used in anesthesia and critical care training;
  4. Explain the new course designed for dentists/students seeking sedation credentials and how it will be utilized, delivered and evaluated; and
  5. Describe the challenges facing the widespread use of this new technology in clinical education.
