Benefits of Applied Learning

The healthcare environment is constantly changing. New surgical devices, new procedures and new methods of treatment are introduced each year. The need for professionals to improve they ways in which they work – as individuals and in groups – is increasing. The need for industry, government organizations and health care organizations to engage with a hands-on, applied learning environment is more paramount now than ever before.

Why Applied Learning?

Applied learning is a principle that crosses all disciplines and gives students and other participants ways to learn through application. While not unique to medicine, applied learning does have a special benefit in this venue. In order to develop the confidence and capability to use a new medical device, procedure or technique, you need the experience of hands-on training. At the Center for Applied Learning, we give our participants this experience through the use of fresh human tissue, synthetic tissue, tabletop task trainers and other patient simulation methods, and we verify the learners' levels of competency in the training.
