CSC Giving Opportunities

The Clinical Simulation Center: A Lifesaving Investment

Before a medical student places a central venous catheter for the first time or a nursing team works through a power failure, they have already gone through it in the Clinical Simulation Center (CSC) - so they are ready for the real thing when stakes are high.

The Leaders and the Best Practices

A critical training hub, the CSC is utilized by U-M’s medical and nursing schools, residency and fellowship programs, as well as the entire professional hospital staff. In this unique environment they have multiple opportunities for individual hands-on practice, to collaborate in working groups, or to hone their expertise with medical tools and surgical equipment in a wide array of human model and simulated treatment scenarios.

To stay on the leading edge of medical education Michigan Medicine is expanding the CSC’s training spaces, adding more sophisticated medical models and increasing access to 24/7 independent simulation stations where students can practice skills and take training modules when their schedule permits.

Become a Victor: Support State-of-the-Art Medical Training Today for Better Patient Outcomes Tomorrow

We are inviting researchers to collaborate, leveraging the CSC’s vast tools to test their ideas and propel treatments forward. Your gift will ensure simulation at the CSC is available and evolving to improve outcomes for the safest, most effective care possible.  Learn more about giving opportunities for the Clinical Simulation Center.

Sponsored Simulators 

Due to the generous donations from friends and alumni, the CSC has obtained the following simulators and task trainers to expand the scope of simulation-based training for all educational programs and improve the care provided at Michigan Medicine.  Many thanks to all who have contributed and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an interest helping us expand to new areas.

  • Obstetric ultrasound trainer for learning and practicing the essential task of fetal measurements and anatomic surveys, currently in use by medical students and residents in Family Medicine and Obstetrics & Gynecology
  • Premature infant simulators for team training, currently in use by Neonatology and Pediatrics for resident and fellow training
  • Bone marrow biopsy trainer currently in use by Internal Medicine residents and Hematology and Oncology fellows for training on this procedure that is essential to the care of those with leukemia, lymphoma, and a host of other cancers and blood system disorders.

Additional simulators being acquired:

  • Butterfly iQ point-of-care ultrasound (info at https://www.butterflynetwork.com/ ) for improving access and training opportunities for utilizing ultrasound at the patient bedside
  • Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta trainer for General and Trauma Surgeons and Emergency Medicine Physicians on this new procedure for stopping critical bleeding in trauma patients
