The ACGME requires that all residents are competent in performing basic invasive clinical procedures. Although simulation models have been used in other programs to teach these skills to interns with the intent to provide training and skills attainment before learning and performing on real patients, a large scale, mandatory simulation training, in which every incoming intern must satisfactorily complete training in a simulation center, prior to starting their intern year, has yet to be described. We describe such a curricular intervention produced in our Simulation Center.
