Global Pathosis SImulation
Hosted by Medical College Class of 2023
This year will be the third iteration of the Global Pathosis Simulation offered every November to MCG’s first year medical students.  During this simulation students are challenged to look through the lens of different global health organizations during a time of global crisis.  As we hear more and more about outbreaks around the world there is a call for healthcare professionals to think step into roles as though-leaders in their community and abroad.   During the simulation students will work together to help the country of  MCGistan respond to an Ebola outbreak.  As part of international education week the Medical College of Georgia encourages students to think about healthcare beyond our borders and the challenges of healthcare delivery in times of crisis or disaster.  For questions, please contact the Dr. Daniel Kaminstein at
