Clinical Simulation


As part of our residents’ education and training, we have access to a state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Center. Here our residents learn and practice procedural skills including aseptic technique, venous cannulation (peripheral and central), interosseous vascular access, thoracentesis and intubation. These resources allow for individual and team-based training to reinforce concepts presented in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and include monthly refresher sessions with a “Mock Code“ for those assigned to the code team. Additionally, within our ambulatory curriculum we utilize tools such as the ophthalmology simulators to review the eye exam, provide feedback on technique, and discuss identified pathology and documentation. Coupled with “real world” experiences, our program incorporates the use of simulation technology to ensure the best delivery of healthcare to our patients under any circumstances.
