History of ROSOMED foundation

Domestic healthcare education system has been using phantoms, training models, low fidelity mannequins for many years by now. And it didnt take long for the Hi-Fidelity simulators to meet Russian educators as they were first presented to the world healthcare society. For example, in 2002 a virtual laparoscopic simulator was demonstrated at the conference of Russian endosurgical society, just one year after it was first exhibited at the German Society of Surgeons conference.

Popularity of simulationbased learning techniques has been ever growing since then, bringing along the need for closer collaboration between the healthcare educational facilities, universities and medical centers for the purpose of sharing experiences, solving current issues and developing uniform requirements to simulation-based learning processes. Local conferences were organized here and there by universities, healthcare education establishments and medical care non-governmental organizations to treat existing problems. However, quite a few major issues remained unsolved. Comprehensive approach to education exploiting virtual reality became an obvious solution to the problem.

Eventually an initiative has been taken by proactive members of the Society to create an all-Russia nongovernmental organization to serve the purposes of simulation-based education. Russian Society for Simulation Education in Medicine (Russian abbreviation ROSOMED [rossomed]), was established at the Foundation Congress on February 25, 2012. Founders of Russian Society for Simulation Education in Medicine (in ABC order):

  • Maxim D. Gorshkov
  • Alexander L. Kolysh
  • Ararat M. Mkrtumyan
  • Julia V. Pakhomova
  • Andrey A. Svistunov
  • Eduard V. Tchernyshov
  • Anatoliy E. Verevkin
  • Russian League in Medicine (presented by Sergey V. Smerdin, Coordination Council chairman)

At the conference some of the organizational issues were solved, governing body was elected, regional affiliates were set up (below please see the list of regional affiliates).

Following the conference, ROSOMED bylaws and protocols for establishment of 43 regional affiliates were submitted to the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation. On the basis of the documentation submitted Minyust, the Ministry of Justice issued to Russian Society for Simulation Education in Medicine a registration Certificate dated June 6, 2012.
