MSSC Mission

To establish medical simulation as a critical, integrated component of graduate education and operational readiness. To provide students with ready access to technologically advanced simulation techniques, including high-fidelity physiologic manikins, task-trainers, and computer-based simulation models.

To improve patient safety through education, team training, and simulation of high-risk, low-volume crisis management scenarios. To ensure clinical competency through modern education techniques and standardized evaluative processes.

 

Vision

Ensuring patient safety, clinical competency, and operational readiness through the use of simulation training techniques.

The Training Program

The MSSC offers medical students, nurses, interns, residents and hospital clinical staff the opportunity to train in a virtual patient care environment using simulated patients and sophisticated technology. The center contains overhead cameras that tape the medical team's actions, so leaders can provide feedback after the simulated training. The MSSC plays a key role in maintaining patient safety and ensuring the operational readiness of all hospital staff.
