The MCW Anesthesia Simulation Program is offering simulation courses to fulfill the training requirement for Part IV (Practice Performance Assessment & Improvement) of Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program (MOCA®). The course is endorsed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists® to provide MOCA® simulation training at the STAR Center.

During the one day course, each diplomat will be in the “hot seat” and manage one critical care scenario and view and/or provide clinical assistance in other scenarios. Diplomats will also identify a process improvement plan to be implemented within their home institution. Please consult the ABA website for a complete list of MOCA® requirements.
