The National Simulation Program is offered by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) to help surgery teams practice and master critical techniques for administering and monitoring office-based anesthesia, for the purpose of better preparing surgery teams for any anesthesia-related situation that could occur during a procedure. Currently, the National Simulation Program has an Office-Based Emergency Airway Management (OBEAM) module, with in-person module sessions, an Office-Based Crisis Management (OBCM) module, and a Sedation online module that is in development.
