What is Simulation?

Our Simulation Lab provides students with an immersive, realistic clinical experience in a low-risk environment. These learning experiences allow them to improve clinical skills, reduce medical errors, and develop confidence in practice. Participating students can interact with high-fidelity manikins or standardized patients; actors modeling specific conditions or playing family member roles. During a simulation, non-participating students and faculty members observe and prepare for the post-simulation debriefing. Throughout the debrief, faculty and students discuss the scenario, the participating student(s) performance, what went well, and things to improve moving forward.
