The Healthcare Simulation Unit (HSU) is an outreach education vehicle with the ability to provide interprofessional simulation-based healthcare education at a distance from the Clinical Simulation Center at the Brody School of Medicine. The vehicle has a realistic, simulated, fully-equipped hospital resuscitation bay, an additional ambulance compartment, an area for controlling the operation of the simulators, and video debriefing capability. Training is accomplished using sophisticated adult and pediatric patient simulators and procedural skills task trainers.
Our team can develop a program specific to your needs, including:
- Simulated Clinical Scenarios
- Interprofessional Teamwork, and Communication
- Practice and Performance Assessment
- Mock Codes
- Central Venous Catheter and Procedural Airway Sedation
Our program has a number of patient simulators for use in clinical scenarios and team training activities, such as:
- SimMan 3G
- Adult, Pediatric, and Newborn Hal
- Truman Trauma
We also have procedural task trainers for practicing specific clinical skills:
- Adult and Pediatric Airway Intubation
- Urethral Catheterization
- Adult and Pediatric Lumbar Puncture
- Central Venous Line Insertion
- Chest Tubes
- and many more!
