Simulation Modalities

Authentic Scenarios Unfold in a Controlled Environment

Simulation education with computer-controlled technology and standardized patients (actors), enables clinicians, administrators, students and corporate professionals to improve their performance by developing and practicing techniques, skills and protocols without compromising the safety of real patients.

High-fidelity patient simulators—an adult male, a pregnant female, a child, and an infant that blink, breathe and have a heartbeat—replicate almost every bodily function and produce accurate responses to the caregiver's interventions. These virtual patients, in addition to standardized patients (actors), advanced audiovisual systems and trained simulation staff, provide the ideal context for modern healthcare training and continuing education.

Learners apply their skills in realistic clinical encounters that represent a wide spectrum of diagnoses, and/or situations involving both clinical and interpersonal skills such as obstetric emergency, cardiac arrest, delivering bad news, counseling and conflict resolution—the customized learning opportunities are unlimited.
