Expose medical trainees to the types of situations they’ll be facing in the real world

Simulation-based education is an advanced tool for educating and training a new generation of doctors and nurses. Medical simulation technology uses a combination of AV components, advanced simulation software, and life-like training manikins to create hands-on, interactive scenarios that medical and nursing students are most likely to face in real life. Medical schools, teaching hospitals, and nursing programs in Washington, D.C., and across the U.S. are coming to realize the unique benefits simulation-based education brings to the medical field.

Among other training purposes, simulation labs are used to train students in three common healthcare scenarios where students can benefit from hands-on practice: emergency medicine simulation, surgery, and clinical exams. Keep reading to learn more.

How to Take the Chaos out of Your Sim Center Control Room How to Take the Chaos out of Your Sim Center Control Room


Healthcare simulations are designed to prepare students for high-stakes medical situations. That means that while simulation exercises take place in a safe and controlled environment, they also need to replicate the chaos and urgency of a true medical emergency. When a “patient” codes or a barrage of trauma victims stretch participants to the limit, they’re learning about real-life stressors through healthcare simulation. One area of healthcare simulation that should be free from chaos and distraction, however, is the control room, where facilitators or simulation technicians monitor and run each scenario. Unfortunately, poor design and bad technology in your control room can create distractions that negatively impact simulations and learning. But good design and the right technology can help scenarios run smoothly and improve participants’ experience. Keep reading to learn more about control room distractions and solutions to prevent them.
