Clinical Skills Center

Welcome to The Ohio State University's Clinical Skills Education and Assessment Center!

The Center’s mission is to promote and provide high quality clinical education and reliable assessment of skills and procedures, with the ultimate intent being to advance patient care. The Center allows Ohio State to expand existing programs, launch new instructional techniques, and employ new outcomes assessments with the goal of training competent, compassionate professionals while fostering educational research. 

In the News  


The Clinical Skills Education and Assessment Center is the only simulation center in the state of Ohio to be endorsed by the American Society for Anesthesiologists  to offer simulation training courses that fulfill one requirement of MOCA Part 4.  Upcoming sessions will be offered on November 15, 2014, February 27, 2015, February 28, 2015, March 13, 2015, and April 18, 2015.  You can register for a course at https://ccme.osu.edu/.


The Clinical Skills Education and Assessment Center has joined with The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery to become one of the inaugural Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery testing sites in the United State.

The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery program is a comprehensive educational and assessment tool designed to teach and evaluate the fundamental knowledge, clinical judgment and technical skills required in the performance of basic gastrointestinal(GI) endoscopic surgery(endoscopy).  For more information about testing center hours and availability, please contact Lisa Lawrence @ 614.293.7399


IMSH_SanFran_Logo.gif Clinical Skills Education and Assessment Center (CSEAC) Staff recently participated at the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) 2014. ​


IMSH is an annual gathering of more than 2,800 attendees comprised of healthcare professionals involved in simulation. It is a global conference with healthcare simulation professionals from over 40 countries attending every year. CSEAC Staff were privileged to be a part of the delivery of educational sessions to the attendees.

Dr. Sheryl Pfeil moderated a panel that included presenters from Medstar Health, Harvard Medical School, Berkshire Health Systems, and The Ohio State University College of Medicine.  The name of the panel presentation was “Making Connections between STEM and Simulation: Inspiring Youth Interest in Health Science Careers via Simulation-Based Outreach and Mentoring Programs”  The content was focused on simulation centers support of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs that are becoming prevalent in K-12 education.

Jim Beck and Scott Winfield delivered a podium presentation entitled “In-Situ: The Technical Perspective”.  The presentation focused on the technical preparations necessary to run and in-situ simulation.

Scott Winfield also joined a team from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Anesthesiology Department and Mt Sinai Hospital to present in a workshop called “Simulation in Medical Student Physiology Education“

CSEAC Staff were also involved with two posters that were presented at IMSH.  The posters were entitled “Presence of Arterial Line Does not Improve Response Time to Proper Management of Simulated Pulseless Electrical Activity” and “Exposure to a High Fidelity Simulation of Cardiovascular Physiology Improves First Year Medical Student Performance on the Cardio-Pulmonary Physiology Final Written Examination”.
CSEAC is excited to have the opportunity to share our knowledge and expand the field of medical simulation.​​​
