Is Stan coming to your next CME activity?

I just read about Stan, Stan, "an emergency care simulator who "resides" in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) quarters at East Central College" (Missouri). I saw one of these at work during the CME Leadership Conference I attended at Duke a couple of years ago, and it was amazing.

While the technology probably is prohibitively expensive for most CME activities, here's hoping that it eventually will come down to the point of feasibility--what better way to learn (and engage learners) than by having them learn by doing on a simulator?
