Research in the use of simulation-based education has been a mainstay of the Clinical Simulation Center since its inception. With over 120 peer-reviewed publications from Penn State Hershey faculty and staff on healthcare simulation, the Center is one of the most prolific contributors to the scientific literature.
Since its founding in 1992, Penn State Hershey faculty and staff have contributed the following to the healthcare simulation field:
|Book or Book Chapters||14|
|Peer-reviewed Journal Articles||120|
|Peer-reviewed Journal Abstracts||21|
|Peer-reviewed Journal Editorials||1|
|Peer-reviewed Journal Letters||2|
|External Grand Rounds||5|
In general, the Center’s academic output falls into three groups (shown with examples):
