Hallym University Medical Center

Overview

Hallym University Medical Center (HUMC) is one of the largest medical institutions in Seoul, Korea. Given the proven potential and great impact of evidence-based training on patient safety, HUMC opened a state-of-the art simulation center to enhance the level of professional medical training among Korean and South-East Asian clinicians.

Recognizing the strength of UCLA Health’s simulation training program, HUMC entered into a 6-month consulting agreement with our institution. This formal engagement between HUMC and UCLA Health Simulation Center was the first project of its kind between the two organizations to transfer knowledge in a sustainable, outcomes-oriented manner.

Highlights of the collaboration

  • Assisted HUMC in building a strong foundation and infrastructure poised for growth.
  • Shared expert advice on the practice of developing simulation scenarios as well as strategic operations and administration.
  • Gave feedback on curriculum development.
  • Visits included train-the-trainer faculty development courses and TeamSTEPPS teamwork training.
