FAMILY MEDICINE SIM CENTER OPENS: In an effort to provide the most advanced

medical training for primary care residents, the Memorial Hospital/Brown Family Medicine Residency Program unveiled the new Center for Clinical Skills Training in their Family Care Center on October 19th. Family Medicine faculty and residents demonstrated the hospital’s new high tech teaching simulators, which will be used for training in various settings including emergency, OB/GYN and pediatric care. Funds for the equipment were provided by a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grant to fund innovative primary care/family medicine residency training, as part of the federal government’s initiative to strengthen and grow the primary care workforce.
