Medical education as a model for simulation education
Simulation professionals need to see themselves first as systems analysts, i.e., problem solvers, rather than just simulation users. As the networked digital economy develops, systems will become more complex, creating a robust market for experienced systems analysts who use simulation to solve operational problems and manage these complex systems. Physicians solve problems involving a complex biological system, i.e., the human body. The medical education system in the United States is examined and proposed as a model for an education structure for professional systems analysts. The objectives and requirements of simulation education are examined and a curriculum structure is proposed. It is also argued that certifying exams would do much to promote the profession and improve the educational environment.
