Statewide simulation networks afford not only the possibility of meeting capacity needs for anesthesiologists, but also provide a venue for training trainers, setting standards, and bringing academic and nonacademic practices together. Furthermore, a statewide network that is appropriately designed opens the door to interdisciplinary activity. Oregon is the first state to implement simulation education across disciplines throughout the state. The model provides an example of how simulation can be successfully applied across a large and diverse area. The article details the benefits of statewide simulation networks, discusses challenges to implementing such networks, and describes Oregon's statewide efforts.
