Simulation is a training and feedback method in which learners practice tasks and processes in lifelike circumstances using models or virtual reality, with feedback from observers, peers, actorpatients, and video cameras to assist improvement in skills. Computer-based medical simulation provides a realistic and economical set of tools to improve and maintain the skills of health care providers adding a valuable dimension to medical training similar to professional training in aviation, defense, maritime, and nuclear energy. Medical simulators allow individuals to review and practice procedures as often as required to reach proficiency without harming the patient. The simulation-based medical training benefits all of us:Patients benefit from improved health outcomes and reduced errors. Patients with rare or unusual conditions benefit from better-trained providers. Consumers benefit from reduced health care costs and enhanced quality. Businesses benefit from the creation of high-tech jobs and greater productivity. Physicians, nurses, and health professionals benefit from better skills and lower alpractice rates through demonstrated clinical competence. Health care organizations benefit from reduced adverse events. Insurers benefit from defending fewer malpractice claims. While the use of medical simulators has the potential to save lives and reduce health care costs, the funding for such efforts is a small portion of what is needed. Bringing medical simulation leaders together to develop funding strategies, create public-private partnerships, and coordinate resources is a necessary next step to leverage and expand the currently available resources. In this study there are discussed simulation tools and approaches used in simulation-based medical education. The aim of this study is to define the role and advantages of simulation based medical education against normal education on health and health systems.
