Health professions' trainees and educators rely on workplace learning for much of clinical skills training. Yet, organizing, structuring, and delivering core curricular educational experiences are limited by the ad hoc nature of patient presentations, workplace complexities, and clinical pressures. The ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and magnified these challenges: trainees face restrictions in accessing workplace environments, and educational patient encounters are actively being minimized to reduce viral transmission. Simulation is an attractive option to supplement workplace learning but comes with significant material and human resource costs. Identifying situations where simulation is worth it – provides high value – and could redress curricular gaps created by pandemic restrictions is of paramount importance to curricular leads. Borrowing from the clinical world, where the Choosing Wisely campaign helps guide clinicians to avoid wasting resources while selecting high-value uses of resources, we propose a Choosing Wisely for educators to maximize the value of simulation-based education under pandemic pressures.
