ABIM to use Medical Simulation Technology to Evaluate Physician Competence


Philadelphia, PA, January 29, 2008 – ABIM has introduced an exciting new option for interventional cardiology diplomates to earn credit toward completion of the Self-Evaluation of Medical Knowledge requirement for Maintenance of Certification. Interventional Cardiology Simulations is the first-ever ABIM-developed lab-based simulation that provides an opportunity to perform cases that mirror what an interventional cardiologist would typically face in daily practice. This is the first time ABIM is using simulation to evaluate physician competence.

Medical Simulation Corporation’s SimSuite® technology replicates a real-life catheterization lab suite, and the five case scenarios developed by ABIM include common problems faced by interventional cardiologists. Physicians complete the Interventional Cardiology Simulations on-site at one of Medical Simulation Corporation’s six SimSuite® education centers or at several cardiology meetings and conferences throughout the year.

ABIM certified physicians enrolled in Maintenance of Certification can register at www.abim.org for a simulator session at one of the SimSuite centers or during the cardiology society meetings and conferences.

For questions about Interventional Cardiology Simulations, call ABIM’s Customer Service Department at 1-800-441-ABIM.
