Benefits of Simulation Training

Simulation training is a powerful teaching resource that provides valuable opportunities to learn and practice:

  • Key competencies, such as communication, problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership
  • Management skills such as physical diagnosis and surgical procedures

Hands-on Training Without Risk

Simulation allows for hands-on learning of procedural and cognitive skills in a real-life environment, but without risk to patients or staff.

Simulation exercises provide:

  • Reproducible curriculum for all trainees
  • Instant performance feedback
  • Improved psychomotor skills
  • Enhanced clinical decision-making
  • Fostering of multidisciplinary teamwork

Practice Any Number of Medical Scenarios

A host of medical problems—from the common to the unusual—can be recreated in our training facilities. Our computer-driven patient simulators respond just like a real human patient would to learners who are performing clinical interventions such as, CPR, intubation and catheterization.

During training, learners' actions are monitored in a control room, reviewed and evaluated. Debriefing sessions give learners immediate feedback so they can refine and improve their management techniques, as well as their diagnostic and decision-making skills.

Skills can be practiced repeatedly, and learners tested to ensure competency.

Invaluable teaching tool

"Imagine you must train a group of individuals to work together under high-stress—a rare diagnosis where decisions mean life or death. Now imagine them practicing repeatedly—as a team—on a realistic simulation of that diagnosis without harm to health."

—Dr. Neal Seymour,
Director, Simulation Center
