N1 - Funding Information: In May of 2005, Legacy Health opened the Carl Peterson Clinical Education Center (CPEC) on the Emanuel Medical Center campus of Legacy Health. Funded by the Good Samaritan Foundation, with grant support from the Oregon Simulation Alliance and other private foundations, the CPEC was built to offer a state-of-the-art simulation-training environment for health care professionals within the organization and the broader community. Legacy Health incorporates high-fidelity simulation training in the development of their health care professionals. Simulation-based curriculum has been developed and implemented to enhance high-level skill development with a focus on critical thinking, clinical competency, and team building. Funding Information: Legacy Health is the largest nonprofit, community-owned health system in Oregon and in the Vancouver, Washington region. Legacy Health has 6 hospitals; more than 50 clinics; Oregon's only burn center; clinical laboratories; and a research institute funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Defense, private foundations, and industry. It provides hospice care as well. Legacy Health consists of 2500 physicians on the medical staff and more than 9000 employees. Funding Information: The Department of Comparative Medicine (DCM) is housed within the Legacy Research Institute and is led by Gregory B. Timmel, DVM, DACLAM. There is currently a staff of 11, including the recent addition of a dedicated surgical technician who brings more than 20 years of operating room experience within a level I trauma center to our program. The DCM revenues have averaged $720,000 per year over the past 5 years. LISEI is physically located in the DCM. The Legacy Research Institute is housed within a 158,000 sq ft building; the DCM space allocation is 6980 sq ft for the surgical training facility and 9548 sq ft are devoted to the vivarium. Our facility provides training of nursing students, nurse residents, Legacy operating room personnel, surgeons, surgical residents and fellows, podiatrists, and others in techniques and new procedures and technologies. Community-based health care providers also use our facility for research and instructional projects, including many surgical studies funded by the Department of Defense. Similarly, a wide range of leading manufacturers in the device and technology industry contracts with DCM to use our surgical facilities to work with experimental models. In 2010, 344 health care professionals used the DCM facility for purposes related to LISEI. Of those, 302 were physicians and 42 were nurses. Funding Information: LISEI is supported by Legacy Health via the Legacy Research Institute (DCM), ATLS Trauma Center, and the CPEC. The organizational structure of LISEI is outlined in Fig. 7 . In addition to the leadership of LISEI, the advisory board membership includes representation from research, the Legacy Foundation Board, leadership of the CPEC and ATLS Trauma Center, interdisciplinary clinical experts, and surgical educational experts. The director of LISEI collaborates closely with the DCM, CPEC, and ATLS trauma center to facilitate the educational efforts of surgeons, nurses, podiatrists, clinical experts, and educators. The educational efforts are focused on providing educationally sound programs within an experiential learning environment. The curriculum is simulation based, with progressive exclusion of animal laboratories. Training is targeted at developing skills of both individuals and teams, as well as meeting the learning needs of novice to expert. LISEI is easily accessible for the learner. LISEI evaluates the progress of each individual or team participants objectively to continuously improve the quality of the curriculum to maximize outcomes.
