The learning that transpired over the prior two days was powerful and has significant implications for practice. It was an outstanding, stellar informative, exhilirating experience. I will forever be grateful for attending such an organized meaningful event. It was the best by far professional conference I have ever attendend in all my 20+ years in nursing. Please extend many thanks to all who where a part in the huge success of this event. I hope to attend next year as well. This sort of experience leaves a lasting impact that resonates and makes you want to achieve the highest level of functionality while maintaining team spirit during these highly stressful events. If you need my assistance to volunteer at any events such as these please feel free to reach out to me. I would love to be a part of such a learning experience. Base Camp left its mark on me. All the tenets will be echoed during my next Rapid Response/Code that I attend. I will arrive with the candor of all the salient themes you taught and helped us to refine.
...such a unique and impactful experience for the faculty and for the participants. I learned an incredible amount from everyone that I worked with on both days, and I had a great time
There are educational courses and there are inspirational courses. I had the opportunity this weekend to participate at BASE Camp... it’s an amazing and unique two days of education ...but perhaps the best aspect of the course is the amazing feedback participants get after each case. By the end of the second day it was moving to see the sense of common purpose and renewed enthusiasm for what we do every day that was clearly visible in all the participants. As I said, there are educational courses and then there are inspirational ones. This one is definitely both…
Sunday was one of the most fascinating experiences I have had ....probably EVER! What an amazing event simulation. The staffers were incredible; I enjoyed meeting many of the young drs and nurses as well as some of the other volunteers. Everyone was very "into" the situation and I was amazed at the scope of the project.
I would just like to personally thank you once again for the incredible experience we had at the Base Camp event this past weekend! Several members of Pace University's Pre-Professional Medical Society were able to attend the event and engage in the activities...All of the students were so pleased to be apart of the simulations and were highly motivated after witnessing a "sneak peak" into the world being a doctor, which most of them wish to be apart of one day...
The PEM Basecamp of last weekend was really great experience for me. Thank you for letting me join that and I apologize for not saying this sooner. Your team - faculties and volunteers - did an excellent job, I think. Faculties are full of passion, volunteers are well trained, kind and informative. Most of all, I sincerely would like to compliment your organizing ability. It should be very hard to set up/run the event, however I couldn't find any flaw in the course. Even the informational slides for faculty was terrific! Although I had experiences of organizing educational courses for pediatric emergency care in Korea with my colleagues, your basecamp was absolutely impressive for me. I learned various educational strategies, more efficient space usage, importance of effective communication (cannot be emphasized enough) and even some medical management.
Thank you again for such a wonderful course... I can not tell you how much I enjoyed BASECamp! I have participated in SIM all over the country and this was by FAR the best SIM I have experienced. I would love to come back in my third year as an instructor so keep me in mind!
Thank you again for such a fantastic educational weekend. This truly was the best conference that I've ever had the pleasure of attending
It was one of the most fruitful learning experiences I have had. The quality of teaching and the high fidelity simulations are unlike any other I have seen or been a part of.
Thank you for an absolutely incredible weekend... I left with a list of about 50 pearls I jotted down that I will take with me forever.
This weekend was absolutely incredible.... It was absolutely amazing seeing all the effort and energy people put into making this weekend so great, and in addition to being an incredibly educational weekend, it was truly inspiring. I met so many great people, and learned so much, on so many different levels, from everyone, that i'm sure i'm only fully aware of some of it now 🙂 ...this was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined.
