We view simulation as an integral part of residency training. As such, we have dedicated
a tremendous amount of resources to our simulation program.
Highlights of our program include:
Dedicated Simulation Suite. The simulation room is adjacent to our department lecture hall and is designed to
resemble an actual ED. Available equipment includes:
Adult Sim Man Manikins (2)
Pediatric Manikins (3)
Adult and Pediatric Airway Management Trainers (4)
Femoral, Internal Jugular, and Subclavian Line Models
Peripheral Intravenous Access Ultrasound Model
Dedicated Simulation Faculty. Emergency Medicine-trained faculty with a particular interest in simulation, will
be instructing simulations.
Dedicated Simulation Time. Individual residents participate in simulation training on a weekly basis. Additionally,
at least one hour of our monthly Grand Rounds time involves simulation. Resuscitations
are viewed and critiqued in an open forum. Feedback for improvement is provided in
a supportive, collegial environment.
Open Access. All residents are provided with the ability to access the simulation lab after hours.
