MOCA Simulation Update
Thu, May 19, 2016

The UAB Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine and the Office of Interprofessional Simulation conducted their first Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) High Fidelity Simulation Course on April 16, 2016.

Anesthesiologists attended the course from Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi. The course featured eight high-fidelity simulations, giving each physician the chance to be a primary participant in one scenario and a backup physician in a second. When not acting as a primary or backup, physicians could view the simulation via a live video feed.
 
UAB became a certified American Society of Anesthesiologists Simulation Center in December 2015 and remains the only site in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas, or Louisiana to offer this course. The MOCA Simulation course satisfies Part IV of the re-certification process for eligible anesthesiologists.
 
The next UAB MOCA simulation will be held July 9. For additional course dates, agendas, and contact information, visit http://www.uab.edu/simulation/moca. Each course will have a maximum of eight participants and runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
