The Gordon Center is a designated Center of Excellence of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. It was established for the application of advanced technology to medical education for medical students, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, paramedic/firefighters and instructors.
And after 50 years of teaching, research and caring for patients at the medical school, Michael Gordon was still passionate about advancing medical education.
“I often think about new ways to apply technology to the learning process,” he said. “There are also many parts of the world that lag the U.S. in the adoption of medical simulation systems, which provide a very cost-effective approach for training new health care professionals.”
Now, more than 2,000 medical centers and agencies worldwide use the educational systems and training curricula developed at the Center.
