Abstract: This is a case study on developing a curriculum system for the Federal Medical Simulation Training Consortium (nine U.S. military medical organizations and the Department of Veterans Affairs’). The Tri-Service Medical Simulation Training Initiative (TMSTI) partnered with the Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards and Student Testing at UCLA to develop a curriculum assessment software application. The first step in this process was to collect over 14,000 curriculum-related consortium documents. The information in these documents were used to create an analytical software application: the Educational Resource Framework-Curriculum Assessment Toolkit. The toolkit is used for viewing and creating or modifying curriculum specifications. In sum, this presentation it will define the consortium; the curriculum development and assessment system and toolkit; and curriculum library toolkit and a web-based portal that can lead to standardized training scenarios with metrics.
