It explores the tensions between artificiality and authenticity in order to understand how, through pedagogical work that involves simulation, medical students come to embody medical culture. Considering simulation in the context of other technologies of affect proliferating in contemporary medical education, the chapter argues that simulation produces medical subjects who learn to experience and manage emotion in ways that align with the dominant discourses in biomedicine.
