The MSC is directly governed by a committee including the Director of Medical Education, the Director of Medical Simulation, the Director of Surgical Simulation, the Associate Medical and Surgical Directors, the Simulation Administrator, the Simulation Technician and a Nursing Simulation Liaison. The MSC governing committee is responsible for planning and organizing the day to day operations of the MSC including budgetary oversight, purchasing, training coordination, and administration.
As one of the 10 simulation centers supported by the Army’s CSC, the MSC is also overseen by the CSC. Leading the CSC is the CSC Chairman, assisted by administrative staff, located at the Anderson Simulation Center in Fort Lewis, Washington. Each medical subspecialty has an assigned simulation specialty advisor who sits on the CSC and reports to the chairman.
Presently, 14 medical specialties are represented on the CSC including: anesthesia, dermatology, emergency medicine, family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, pathology, pediatrics, psychology and urology.
In addition to the medical specialty advisors, the CSC also includes advisors from the Army Nurse Corps, the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, the Army Military Simulation Training Centers, and the Director of Medical Education from each of the 10 military treatment facilities with CSC simulation centers.
