Biomedical Innovation

The Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital has a long history of innovation in biomedical engineering and the uses of medical simulation. The primary mission of these activities has been aimed at improving the safety of anesthesia, with the ultimate goal that no patients are ever harmed in the cost of anesthesia care.

Center for Medical Simulation (CMS)

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) is led by Jeffrey Cooper, its founder. It is a collaborative effort with the Harvard Medical School Anesthesia Department and is located in Cambridge, near the MIT campus. Its mission is to improve patient safety through the use of simulation techniques. In addition to teaching, CMS is also a laboratory for the study of human performance and for testing interventions aimed at reducing errors and system failures in medicine and in anesthesia specifically.
