Simulation in Medical Education

The center's mannequins can be programmed to speak, cry, blink, bleed and respond physiologically to medical intervention. A variety of clinical situations can be simulated in realistic settings. Stroke, cardiac arrest, asthma and obstructed airways are just a few of the challenging scenarios which allow the participants to experience state-of-the-art training with no risk to patients.

Among those who use the Simulation Center for training are:

  • Medical Students
  • Emergency Medicine Residents
  • Nurses
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Paramedics
  • Emergency Medical Service Providers
  • NYS Poison Center Staff
  • Hospital Chaplains
