SimTiki is the healthcare simulation based education center at the John A Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). SimTiki facilitates over 3,000 simulation based training encounters annually. As of February 2015, SimTiki Simulation Center is only one of ten centers in the nation accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare for the field of Research.
Achieving it's double accreditation for both Teaching/Education and Research in December 2014, the SimTiki team is grateful to all of our JABSOM ohana, national & international partners and participants in helping us learn and grow.
As a community resource, SimTiki serves broad training needs, ranging from High School Students through Medical Students & Residents to practicing physicians, first responders, nurses, military personnel and allied health professionals. International programs include sponsored and shorter term programs focused on faculty development and clinical skills.

Dr. Scott A Harvey, MD, MS, Faculty Division of General Ob-Gyn Hawaii Residency Program. Dr. Harvey's sub-specialty is in Trauma and Surgical Critical Care. His interests include Obstetric Critical Care.
As a fairly new JABSOM graduate and now OB-Gyn faculty member Dr. Harvey shares, "Some events in pregnancy rarely occur, but can end in the tragedy of losing two patients, a mother and her unborn baby. Having a clinician knowledgeable on the recognition and treatment of theses diseases is paramount to survival. Simulation training offers a realistic teaching model to investigate both knowledge and procedural based practices to save lives in the event of an unexpected disease or traumatic process."
