Serious Games

Train the Trainer for Serious Games - cost 400 NIS

Simulation and gaming are engaging strategies to learn and understand medical crises management and technical skills. The Serious Games education training program is one of the novel education teaching tools used in the medical field for teaching residents and faculty. Serious games are a simple fun way to teach and consolidate known and new information in a lively learning environment.

The concept is to teach and enrich the medical learning experience using well-known and loved childhood games. Serious Games participants can enjoy an active fun learning experience to reach specific pre-defined learning goals. Debrief goals are defined in advance, to reinforce the important learning goals. Participants gain an understanding of knowledge about a specific topic, and work as a team to learn management strategies, troubleshooting, guidelines and more. Our group was the first to facilitate Serious Games at an international anesthesia medical conference,


Designing and facilitating this learning experience requires creative thinking and a defined methodology.

For the first time at an International Anesthesiology Congress, #ICISA2023/#Sepsis2023 we will run a Train the Trainer course for Serious Games (TTT-SG) methodology. Participants of the TTT-SG course will also have the opportunity to facilitate Serious Games sessions to be held during the congress.

5.    Create a logistical plan to run a Serious Games activity.

6.    Identify and train instructors suitable for this educational strategy.
