John Sokolowski and Catherine Banks

The 2010 Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC 10)
Ottawa, Canada, July 11-14, 2010


Modeling and Simulation is at the forefront of a multi-disciplinary effort to integrate quantitative and qualitative research methods and diverse modeling paradigms. M&S possesses a variety of modeling tools that can represent many aspects of life, including life itself. The Medical and Health Sciences are proof of that in that M&S is providing practitioners in these fields the capability to better understand some of the fundamental aspects of healthcare such as human behavior, human systems, medical treatment, and disease proliferation. This paper presents a philosophical, theoretical, and practical approach to advancing M&S education specific to medical and health sciences.
